(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – Eastern Idahoans are making less in hourly wages than the rest of the country. KIDK reports that on average, Pocatello residents make $18.02 per hour, while folks in Idaho Falls make around $16.95. That’s compared to the national average rate of $22.33. As with other parts of the country, there’s an overabundance of college-educated job seekers, leading to many people taking jobs far below their qualifications. Labor experts say lower wages could be an incentive for more businesses to come to the area.
