Colorado Wages Down, Farm Wages Up in 2009


Wages across the state were down significantly in 2009 according to Aldo Svaldi at the Denver Post. But agriculture wages were up 15% during the year. Some of the largest gains were in rural counties such as Kiowa and Washington, somthing that Svaldi says county officials were hard pressed to explain.

“We haven’t had anything new come in,” said Jan Richards, community coordinator with the Kiowa County Economic Development Foundation.
