Lowest-paying jobs in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Stacker compiled the lowest paying jobs in Sioux Falls, SD using data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The U.S. may be one of the wealthiest countries in the world but there’s a growing trend of financial inequality, with middle-class households feeling the most impact. In fact, the number of adults who live in middle-class households dropped from 61% in 1971 to 50% in 2021, according to an April 2022 analysis from Pew Research Center. On the other hand, the upper-income level rose from 14% to 21%. The declining middle class in the U.S. can be attributed to various factors including a decrease in unions and manufacturing jobs and an increased need for college-educated, tech-savvy employees.
