Best Paying.

Researchers, using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, conclude that St. Louis construction workers are among the highest paid in America. Findings indicate that the Midwest offers some of the best wages for construction workers, while cities in Florida and Texas (both “Right to Work” states) stand out for having some of the lowest pay. St. Louis comes in at #2 on the list (behind Chicago) with Kansas City making a strong showing at #12.  Read more here.

St. Louis Statistics:
Median salary for construction workers: $65,936
Median salary for all occupations: $37,910
Number of construction workers: 53,980 (4.0% of total)
