Most common hourly pay rates in Virginia

$32, $39, $40

Observation: The discrepancy in the range of pay rates is likely attributed to the Beltway; 26% indicated they work in the metropolitan area outside the District of Columbia. For example, the hourly rates reported from the state stretched from $28 an hour to $56 an hour. Due to the cluster of pay arrangements at the high end, though, Virginia ranks above national averages for pay.
