Entry-Level Laborer Salary

Entry-Level Laborers take home an average $11.14 per hour. Geographic location is the biggest factor affecting pay for this group, followed by the specific employer. Though the majority of Entry-Level Laborers do not report high levels of job satisfaction, most are moderately content with their role. Not all workers are lucky enough to have benefits; in fact, a majority are without coverage. Medical insurance is claimed by roughly two-fifths and dental insurance is reported by slightly less than a third. Participants in PayScale's salary questionnaire provided the particulars of this report.
