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 Wyoming?

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