This Is the Most Unique Job in Minnesota

imageForEntry6 aryThe United States has the most dynamic economy in the world. Where it once was symbolized by the automotive and steel industries, the American economy is now the world’s technology colossus. But the U.S. economy is more than that. It is a unique sum of the parts of 50 states whose identities are often tied to a particular job or industry. (And domestic workers hold the most jobs in these 12 states.)

Using data on employment by state for all detailed occupations from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Wage and Employment Statistics survey for May 2022, 24/7 Wall St. identified the most unique job in every state.

Based on location quotient – the ratio of the concentration of an occupation’s employment in a state relative to its concentration nationwide – miscellaneous gambling service workers ranks as the most unique occupation in Minnesota. With 3,090 jobs in the field out of 2,827,310 jobs in the state, the occupation is 13.2 times more concentrated in Minnesota than it is nationwide.

The average annual wage for workers in the occupation across the state is $30,520, compared to $34,340 nationwide.
