There were about 577,000 jobs that paid less than $13 per hour in the first quarter 2014. That was about 32 percent of all jobs. We picked $13 per hour for this blog post because we were asked about it recently, but we can look at other wage levels too. This interactive graph lets you see the share and number of jobs in $1 increments from the minimum wage or less ($9.10 per hour in first quarter 2014) to $20 per hour or more. Select any county to explore local wage distributions by the share of all jobs and by the number of jobs.
