(Albuquerque, N.M.) -- The average worker in Albuquerque gets paid less than the national average, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
The data comes from a new study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and finds that the average hourly wage in the city was 6 percent less than the average hourly wage for the country, $20.69 compared to $22.01 an hour.
The study found that 15 out of the 22 major occupational groups in Albuquerque were paid less than the national average for those professions.
Still, there are exceptions. Health care support workers and those in the life, physical and social science occupations were paid considerably more than their national counterparts.
Lawyers, meanwhile, are paid 24 percent less than the national average.
