Highest-Paying Jobs in the US

Do what you love and the money will follow is great in theory, but the truth of the matter is, certain jobs and fields simply pay more. The Bureau of Labor Statistics National Compensation Survey showed, for example, that white-collar earnings, which averaged $21.85 per hour, were the highest among occupational groups. Blue-collar pay averaged $15.03 per hour, while the hourly pay of service occupations averaged just $10.40.

The jobs that pay the most require at least a four-year college degree. According to the most recent data from the Employment Policy Foundation, the nation’s 12 top-paying jobs -- and the mean annual income reported in 2003 for each -- were:

Top Paying Jobs Overall
• Physicians and surgeons -- $147,000
• Aircraft pilots -- $133,500
• Chief executives -- $116,000
• Electrical and electronic engineers -- $112,000
• Lawyers and judges -- $99,800
• Dentists -- $90,000
• Pharmacists -- $85,500
• Management analysts -- $84,700
• Computer and information system managers -- $83,000
• Financial analysts, managers and advisors -- $84,000
• Marketing and sales managers -- $80,000
• Education administrators -- $80,000

Though many of these occupations require an advanced degree, there are jobs at every education level that pay more than other jobs for workers with similar levels of schooling. Here, courtesy of the Employment Policy Foundation, is a look at the best-paying occupations at varying education levels:

Top Paying Jobs That Do Not Require a High School Degree
These jobs tend to require substantial on-the-job training and work experience rather than formal education and schooling:
• Industrial production managers -- $36,000
• Bailiffs, correctional officers and jailers -- $36,400
• Drafters -- $36,000
• Construction manager -- $33,600
• Electricians -- $31,900

Top Paying Jobs for High School Graduates
These occupations emphasize work experience and on-the-job training rather than formal education:
• Computer software engineers -- $58,900
• Computer/information systems managers -- $56,400
• Computer programmers -- $55,000
• Network systems and data communications analysts -- $49,000
• General and operations managers -- $48,000
• Database, network and computer systems administrators -- $48,000

Top Paying Jobs for a Two-Year College Degree
The following jobs tend to be technical in nature, emphasizing skills developed on the job as well as job-specific training and certifications:
• Healthcare practitioners -- $66,000
• Business analysts -- $58,000
• Electrical and electronic engineers -- $57,000
• Mechanical engineers -- $56,800
• General and operations managers -- $54,000
• Computer and information systems managers -- $50,400

"A look at expected earnings over a lifetime shows the economic benefit of higher education attainment," says Tony Carnevale, who chaired President Clinton’s National Commission for Employment Policy and authored several books, including "America and the New Economy: How New Competitive Standards are Radically Changing American Workplaces."

A person with a doctoral or professional degree, for example, is expected to earn about $3 million over the course of his or her working life while a person without a high school diploma is expected to earn less than $1 million. "Despite an increasing supply of well-educated workers, the college wage premium has nearly doubled since 1980, largely because of the added value of a college education in the new knowledge economy," adds Carnevale.

The Employment Policy Forum concurs, but stresses that these numbers are only averages. Individual earnings depend on many factors inducing geographic location, employer size (average hourly earnings ranged from $15.06 in organizations employing between 1 and 99 workers to $24.09 in those with 2,500 workers or more), industry (workers in goods-producing industries earned $18.46 an hour vs. those in service-producing industries who earned $16.44 an hour) and the worker’s skills and characteristics.

High profile/paying jobs vs low profile/paying jobs?
Asked By Celtic Latino,Last Answer By crystal spring At 2010.10,1 Answers

Why do people often treat corporate executives, lawyers, businessmen (and women), surgeons, doctors and the housewives/mothers of upper middle-class/wealthy men with such respect

but yet treat people who work as cashiers, in customer service jobs, janitors, gas station workers, mechanics and those who work more manual jobs in the hospital (patient transport) and in hotels as if they are lesser human beings?

I noticed more often than not people who've worked hard their whole life have so much more wisdom than people who've been silver spooned but yet these silver spooned types (not couning people who've WORKED for their high ranks in life) are smiled upon and treated with so much dignity and respect.

Why do people look down on some professions and smile upon others, in other words? We all have a lot to fill in life and our own life stories and no one is better or higher than someone else.

where is the problem. Are we being made fearful by a government that has some sort of plan that the people may not want? That they may get fighting mad about? Anyone else believe that we are being manipulated? Because something is not right about what we are being told. It does not add up. What are your thoughts? Thanks to all who answer!

I mean really, you can't go shopping at walmart expecting to only buy the cheap stuff from china and then on the other hand expect to find high paying jobs, (it doesn't work like that) DOES IT?? If you want those 15- 20- 25 dollar an hour jobs you have to be willing to pay a good dollar for top quality USA made stuff ,,,,, not cheap stuff from 3rd world countries. Don't you agree??? It just seems like americans are their worst enimies.

Asked By arthur z,Last Answer By amn1717 At 2009.12,1 Answers

Outsourcing to a cheaper supplier (in the same country and outside it) is not new. Today, not only material are supplied, as many international companies outsource even their services to cut costs. Such companies are located all over the world and most of such services (as well as goods) are from the Third World or developing nations where the material, production and labour costs are still very low compared to First World or developed countries. I know of companies in many European countries as well as developed or developing Asian countries doing this. For technical expertise, India, Philippines and Malaysia are major suppliers due to their English background (English being the commercial language internationally).
