Earnings of U.S. pharmacists

About 42 percent of pharmacists in the United States earn 61 to 70 U.S. dollars per hour, while 3.2 percent earn 40 U.S. dollars per hour or less. Pharmacists earn some of the highest mean hourly wages among health care practitioners and technical occupations at an average of 57.34 U.S. dollars per hour. Dental hygienists earn about 35 U.S. dollars per hour. Pharmacists have one of the highest salaries in the health care industry. Those living in Santa Cruz, California and Gadsden, Alabama, are among the highest-paid professionals in the country. Job location is an important determinant on a pharmacist’s earnings while employer and tenure have a small influence as well.

In comparison, some of the lowest paid jobs in the United States are found in the food industry, especially among employees in fast food restaurants. Within the education and health services industry, about 213,000 people are paid hourly wages that are at or below minimum wage during this year. However, overall those with more education, tend to earn a higher hourly wage.
