The Humboldt Cannabis Economy: How Much Money Does a Marijuana Worker Typically Make?
The author takes a look at how much money a typical cannabis worker in the Emerald Counties makes. The author says he based his piece on “dozens of people working in the industry.” While this seems like a small sample, the numbers themselves make sense to this observer of the local marijuana economy.
The author basically says there are two types of owners—those who tackle all or most of the labor themselves or with their immediate family and those who have employees. The author then breaks down the range of salaries for these types employees.
For instance, according to the article, most laborers on marijuana farms “work for an hourly wage. For many years $20 an hour was the standard entry level wage although some claim to work for as little as $10-$15 an hour.”
The article then breaks down everything from clone makers to driving pounds for sale. Check out the the article here. Then let us know what you think of the numbers.
