The Lowest Paying Job in North Dakota
If you hope to strike it rich in North Dakota, this is one job you may want to avoid.
The career website Zippia combed through statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to determine the highest and lowest paying jobs in each state. We’ve already covered the highest paying job in North Dakota. It’s an anesthesiologist. In North Dakota, anesthesiologists make around $283,000 per year.
However, the lowest paying job, based on the data is a restaurant host. Unfortunately data for what restaurant hosts make specifically in North Dakota was not available. Zippia did not provide the number and we looked through the Bureau of Labor Statistics website ourselves and we also could not find it.
However, the national average salary for a restaurant host is $20,530 per year. The national average hourly rate is $9.87. The current minimum wage in North Dakota is $7.25 per hour.
This is something to think about the next time you yell at a host or hostess because you’ve been waiting over an hour for a table.
