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 Vermont?

So to piggy-backing on our research into the highest paying jobs in Vermont, 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 Locker Room, Coatroom, And Dressing Room Attendants are the lowest paid people in Vermont.

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

  1. Locker Room, Coatroom, and Dressing Room Attendants
  2. Pharmacy Aides
  3. Laundry and Dry-Cleaning Workers
  4. Baggage Porters and Bellhops
  5. Cashiers
