10 Careers that Top $30 per Hour

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, January 22, 2009

My husband and I are curious about which job pays enough to live the life they wanted to. We have found this statistic from yahoo; a salary data being reported by BOL. If you are planning to change your career, consider these jobs. My husband is planning to go back to school and taking Nursing course. We hope he can get approve for a 2-2 1/2 year loan.

In just 60 minutes, you could earn enough to pay for a tank of gas, the cable bill, gym membership, or dinner out. Thirty dollars still covers some of life's essential costs. Earn that much in just one hour on the job, and you have enough to build a comfortable life.

The latest U.S. Census Bureau figures put the median household income in the U.S. at $50,233. A $30-per-hour job brings in $62,400 before taxes, or 20% more than the national median. For many people, this extra margin is just one promotion or one credential away. To boost your economic security, consider these 10 careers with salary data as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:
