Entry-Level Laborer Salary

An average Entry-Level Laborer can expect to take home roughly $11.11 per hour. Geography is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by the specific employer. While some workers in this profession — a majority — do not have any health coverage, around two in five do receive medical benefits and just under a third have dental insurance. Though the majority of Entry-Level Laborers do not report high levels of job satisfaction, most are moderately content with their role. Participants in PayScale's salary questionnaire provided the particulars of this report.
