HBG Lifts Starting Pay
Beginning February 2021, Hachette Book Group will raise entry level salaries to $45,000 in its most expensive locations. Salaries in locations with lower cost of living will increase to $41,000.
HBG sees the increase as a way to make publishing more attractive to people of color as well as those from less privileged backgrounds. In addition to raising starting salaries, adjacent salaries will also be adjusted.
