TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

According to a federal agency, Tucsonans earn quite a bit less than the national average.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics said Tucson residents earn $21.42 per hour, more than $2 below the national mark.

The typical Tucsonan makes $44,000 a year.

Local architecture and engineering jobs pay the most at almost $45, but those positions are outnumbered by office and administrative support jobs that pay just under $17 per hour.

We're running a Facebook Live poll until 8 p.m. Thursday, May 19, to find out why you think Tucsonans make so much less than the national average.
