One of my most popular posts on this blog is the one on work at home jobs paying $10 or more an hour. Since writing that post, I’ve had a few people tell me they think that in this day and age, even $10 an hour isn’t much money. While that’s still more than minimum wage in many states, I would have to agree that it’s not as much now as it was ten years ago.
So today’s post is kind of a follow-up to that post. I’ve made a list of those companies that pay $12 or more an hour. You’ll see some companies that may be familiar from the other post, but I’ve also made an effort to include some companies that are not on the list so it won’t be an identical list.
And although I’ve done research here using Glassdoor and various work at home forums to find out for sure what these companies pay, I can’t guarantee them. Feel free to let me know in the comments if I’ve gotten any of these rates wrong.

I personally use and recommend FlexJobs. It’s a fee-based membership site (about $15 a month), but before that scares you away, you should know they are able to guarantee their listings to be free of scams! Plus, they post hundreds of new work at home and flexible leads for people in the US and other parts of the world almost every day. You can go here to check it out.
