Most Wyoming Wages Don't Move

Laramie, Wy – A report shows that while those heavily involved in the energy boom have seen huge wage hikes the average worker elsewhere in Wyoming has seen little benefit. According to a report called The State of Working America most Wyoming incomes have remained the same over the last five years.
Economist Sylvia Allegretto adds that younger workers are seeing the smallest piece of the pie. She says recent college and high school graduates also are getting fewer benefits then they did five years ago.
