Back in high school I had the best job you could have in high school, I worked at the local movie theater for minimum wage plus free popcorn and movies. I was happy to make minimum wage back then, but now I couldn’t imagine living on the $5.86/hr I was making.

All of this reminiscing got me wondering, who gets paid the least in Hawaii?

So to piggy-backing on our research into the highest paying jobs in Hawaii, we decided to use data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to identify the lowest paying jobs.

After combing through the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we discovered that Ushers, Lobby Attendants, And Ticket Takers are the lowest paid people in Hawaii.

Here’s a quick look at the 10 lowest paying jobs in Hawaii:

  1. Ushers, Lobby Attendants, and Ticket Takers
  2. Childcare Workers
