If you're looking for a new job, you might want to avoid one of these - the lowest paying jobs in Buffalo. I completely understand that many people don't have a choice. Nor am I making any judgment against anyone who does any of these jobs. Many of these jobs are very necessary for society, but unfortunately, their pay doesn't reflect that. Like #10 for instance, it's so important for working parents, but yet it's one of the lowest-paid jobs. The same thing with #3, they are potentially saving lives, but their compensation is ridiculously low.

Unfortunately, This Is The Poorest Zip Code in WNY [Photos]

According to Zip Data Maps, this is the poorest zip code in Western New York. Based on 2018 data from the United States Internal Revenue Service, the poorest zip code in WNY is 14211. It is the area known as Schiller Park and MLK Park. The 'Adjusted Gross Income' is $26,820 and the 'Median Household Income' is $26,496. The AGI for the poorest zip is only 11 percent of the AGI of the wealthiest zip ($225,910), which shows the widening gap between the working poor and the wealthy. The really unfortunate part is that this zip code is also #1 on the list of where the most registered sex offenders live in WNY.

The 14211 zip code has the most registered sex offenders in Buffalo with 145 listing their home addresses in the area. Some of the well-known streets the 14211 zip includes are part of Genessee Street, Doat Street, Fillmore Avenue, Walden Avenue, and East Ferry.
