Dental hygienists earn about 35 U.S. dollars per hour. Pharmacists have one of the highest salaries in the health care industry.

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.
