Just in case you are wondering what they are, here is a look at the 10 lowest paying jobs in Colorado for 2018.

Let's be honest. We would all like to make more money than we do. But, the fact is, if we have a job, most of us are just thankful to be employed and to be bringing home a paycheck. That beats the alternative of being unemployed, filing bankruptcy, and/or standing on a street corner holding a sign.

Another fact in this matter is that jobs do not deserve equal pay. Jobs that require a degree such as in the medical field are going to pay better than most jobs that don't. There are jobs that don't require a college degree but they do require a certain level of skill and competence, and these are generally going to pay more than jobs filled by "unskilled" laborers.

In many cases, we are what we are and we play the cards we were dealt. Maybe you couldn't afford secondary education, or maybe you are lacking particular skills and gifts. Maybe you are limited by circumstances that could be anything from a certain disability to having children. Consequently, you do what you can do, and you do what you have to do to make ends meet.

I say all of that to point out the fact that I am not in any way belittling anyone who works in the occupations listed below. On the contrary, I have great respect and admiration for anyone who is working to make a living regardless of the nature of the job or the numbers on their paycheck. People in these jobs should not be treated with any less respect than someone with one of the top 10 paying jobs.

The idea of this post, for information purposes, is to simply list the 10 lowest paying jobs in the state of Colorado. If your particular job is listed below, please don't feel bad about it and don't feel bad about yourself. We need people in these jobs. They are necessary.

Regardless of the numbers on your paycheck, be proud that you have a job and that you are giving 100% to the assigned task.
