We can compare this to the average personal income in the US: $40,584 Connecticut being the highest at $56,001 and Mississippi the lowest at $31,186. US Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis 2010

While this is decent pay in some countries. The average cost of living in the US is: $20,194

While this is decent pay in some countries. The average cost of living in the US is: $20,194 This is for a single person. Where annual spending on food is $2577, annual spending on housing is $6844, and a car costs $3442 each year. US Bureau of Labor Statistics 2013

So when comparing national averages: $40,584 income for all people $22,337 income for bike mechanics $20,194 as costs of living Bike mechanics are $18,247 below average income but $2143 above average expenses. At least they can afford a bike.
