Lowest-paying jobs in Orlando

If you’ve ever found yourself saying, “I get paid nothing,” then cozy up to your screen with a 15-cent pack of ramen noodles—you won’t want to miss this list.

Unemployment is at its lowest rate since 2000. But having a job, and having a job that pays a
living wage, are not necessarily the same thing. So while
250,000 non-farm jobs were added to the U.S. economy in October, it’s a different dataset entirely to explore which of those jobs actually pay a living wage. How do things shake out in your hometown? To determine which jobs in the U.S. pay the lowest in Orlando, Stacker analyzed information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The data was collected in May 2017 and ranked by average annual salary, with ties being broken by average hourly wage. Aside from the cool fact that the occupation of hand-sewer still exists, the data provides interesting insights as to who truly should get to complain about their wages. Did your job make the list?
