There were some exceptions.
The lowest-paid job title in 2017, as reported by the BSA, was a freelance web shooter design and video production position.
It reported that the median annual salary for the job was $22,879.
There was also a shortage of entry-level positions for those working at non-profits.
For the second year in a row, non-profit workers in 2017 made up a disproportionate share of the workers making up the majority of those employed in these jobs.
The largest share of these non-wage workers were in the retail and food service industry, according a report by the Economic Policy Institute.
The BLS reported that only 15.2 million people were employed in jobs that paid at least $10 an hour in 2016.
That number is down from a high point of 23.9 million in 2007.
