Clinical Lab Tech Pay in the Rocky Mountain Region

There were over 326,000 clinical laboratory technicians and technologists employed in the U.S. as of May 2020 according to data recently published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).  Just over 12,000 of those clinical lab tech positions were in the five-state Rocky Mountain region.  For clinical lab techs, the Rocky Mountain region is a mixed bag in terms of pay relative to the national average.  The annual mean wage for clinical lab techs in Montana and Colorado is better than the national average, but elsewhere in the region annual mean wages lag the national average. In fact, two states in the region fall in the bottom quintile nationally for clinical lab tech annual mean wages.  BLS data from May 2020 reveals the following about clinical lab tech pay in the Rocky Mountain region:
