Eddy County 2nd Highest Wages in the State


Eddy County has the second highest wages in the state, according to a recent release by the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions. According to the data, the average wage distribution in Eddy County is $1,235.

Los Alamos is first in the state with an average weekly wage of $1,960. Lea County is third with an average weekly wage of $1,060. The nuclear industry, oil and gas industry, and potash industry all offer high paying jobs, which contribute to Eddy County’s high wages. We all know that having high wages comes with its own set of challenges, but we’re very glad that this community has industries able to offer good salaries to so many men and women.
