At some point in our lives, many of us worked as cashiers. Perhaps you took a job in a grocery store during high school or college. Or maybe you work at Walmart or Target today.

Cashiers work in many places – from retail stores to grocery stores to gas stations. These roles are important enough for companies that, despite the pandemic, cashiers are considered "essential workers" in many countries.

However, dark clouds are emerging for the role of cashier.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics project, which envisages advances in automation like self-service checkouts, will cut the number of cashier jobs by 4% between 2018 and 2028.

Many factors determine how much you earn as a cashier, but one of the most important is the state in which you work. While the national average hourly wage for cashiers is $ 11.72, government averages range from just $ 9.70 to $ 14.99.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average hourly wage for cashiers is given in each of the 50 states.

Some cashier jobs – like in restaurants and some retail stores – have disappeared due to the pandemic. However, this does not mean that you will not find part-time work that you can do comfortably from home.

As we reported last month, more than two dozen companies offer such work. For more information, see “30 companies that are filling part-time remote jobs amid the pandemic”.

There are also plenty of part-time opportunities for older workers, as you can find in “20 great part-time jobs for pensioners”.
