Idaho wages drop to 84% of national average in 2012

May 9, 2013 8:48 a.m.

Idaho workers’ average hourly wages were 84 percent of the national average in 2012, the Idaho Department of Labor reports, down from 85.2 percent of average in 2011. That ranked the state 45th in the nation, down from 44th in 2011. For all occupations, a new report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that Boise workers made 11 percent less than the national average wage; Coeur d’Alene workers, 21 percent less; Idaho Falls, 22 percent less; Lewiston, 17 percent less; and Pocatello, 19 percent less. Pocatello was the state’s only metro area where the percentage increased from the year before. You can read a full report here from the Idaho Department of Labor

Sen. Elliot Werk
  Doesn't it seem like legislators are focused on everything but your priorities? Distractions like religious discrimination, wolf extermination, and arming college kids are debated while your priorities are ignored. Idaho now ranks 50th in the nation in wages and investment in schools and #1 in minimum wage jobs.
