Average Entry-Level Laborers make around $12.64 per hour. The particular firm is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by geography. Though the majority of Entry-Level Laborers do not report high levels of job satisfaction, most are moderately content with their role. Slightly more than half of professionals in this line of work do not receive benefits; however, just over two-fifths report medical coverage and roughly a third claim dental coverage as well. This report is based on answers to PayScale's salary questionnaire.
