Work in the New Orleans area, earn less

We make less in New Orleans than most people in the nation.  That's the word from a new federal report.

"The mean wage for all occupations in New Orleans was $20.40 per hour in May 2012, compared to the national average of $22.01," according to the  Bureau of Labor Statistics.

For a 40 hour work week, that means the average yearly pay in New Orleans is $42,432 and $45,781 for the national average.

They also broke it down by profession.

"Local wages for the major groups ranged from $10.08 per hour in food preparation and serving related jobs to $46.75 in management occupations."
