    100 lowest paying jobs in America

    To contextualize the wealth disparity that exists in the United States, consider the jaw-dropping chasm between those at the top and those at the bottom. If one were to aggregate the annual salaries of the 100 lowest paying jobs and multiply the resulting figure of $2,692,920 by 1000, that number would not even be a tenth of the $33 billion in profit Amazon chief executive officer Jeff Bezos raked in during only the first four months of 2018. While it's astounding that one man can make so much more than a significant percentage of the country’s population, it also begs the question: which kinds of jobs pay their employees barely livable wages?

    Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Stacker listed the 100 lowest paying jobs in the United States according to the position’s average annual wage. Each job’s annual wage is listed alongside its total employment in 2017 and, where applicable, its average hourly wage.

    Read on to see how your annual salary compares with the nation’s lowest.
