A study finds 44% of U.S. workers are employed in low-wage jobs that pay median annual wages of $18,000. Also noted is that most of the 53 million Americans working in low-wage jobs are adults in their prime working years. Their median hourly wage is $10.22 per hour, which is above the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour but well below what's considered the living wage for many communities.
