Entry-Level Laborers take home approximately $12.51 per hour on average. Geography is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by the specific employer. For the most part, people in this position report moderate levels of job satisfaction. Unfortunately, some people in this line of work are without benefits — a majority lack coverage. On the flip side, just over two-fifths have medical insurance and just under a third receive dental plans. The figures in this rundown are based on the results of PayScale's salary questionnaire.
