Jobs that pay $1 a minute
Some require years of study -- or even election, but for others hustle, muscle and self-promotion go a long way toward boosting income.

I lived on the street when I was a teen with no money, no hope and no future. I decided I wanted more in life so I worked hard, got an education and learned an awesome trade. I now earn a lot more than $1 a minute as a Programmer! Sure, I had a few careers before this one and it took ten years of study and hard work (60-80 hours a week) to earn what I do now, but I did what I had to do to make it. Nobody gave me a handout and I did not ask for one or thought I was entitled to have something I did not earn myself. I'm tired of the whining class we have today! Wake up America!!!
The only person who can stop you from getting what you want is YOU!!!!
Congress, bottom feeders ,don't insult the fish. Congress= SCUM of the earth!! Giving OUR tax money to the Middle East.
My Dad gets paid <$60k a year, he cares for a family of 8 total, has a 6 hour commute daily, rarely gets more than 4 hours of sleep, and often goes through a day with only one meal, and still manages to keep his family in a nice home, pay the mortgage, school, food etc.
The biggest obstacle no matter what degree you get is employers always want experience, but experience comes from finding a company that doesn't require experience.. Sort of a catch 22 there.
Another big obstacle is people don't to go back to school to get another degree when it costs so much and they are guaranteed nothing when they graduate except more debt.
Universities need to team up with employers so that people don't end up wasting 2-4+ years in a college/university.
Pilots are well deserving of it. They have thousands of lives in their hands every week.
I know, I am a single mother of one. He is only 28 and now a Captain. It took 6 years of hard work and stressful days for him before becoming a pilot. The cost, well over $ 200,000.00.
The long days and fatigue that these men and women endure is beyond any of these other positions.
We also have friends who perished in 911. That in itself is scary and worry all the time about him.
Did you notice they included the Congrees is this highly paid group?
Maybe we should all vote to pay them less cause I don't think they are worth it.
I could also see by this article that they spend a lot of money to get elected and that fact makes me wonder just this fact, Is this a government elected of the the people, by the people, and for the people? I think we the people need to change this problem soon because I don't think those elected anymore are for the people.
I think that people look too much in the common way of life by looking to get a degree and go to school. In school, they tell you to get a GOOD education so you can get a good job. Why is it that, they always teach people to be the TAIL to work for someone else, when a person can easily startup their own business. For instance, I am self-employed and own my very own computer shop. I started in the beginning of March. I know how people say, well, you need to have papers and this and that to say that I know what I am doing. The general public, is not going to be looking for papers when they come to me, they look to get their computers fixed. I think going to school to learn something that you already know is a waste of money and time. After a student graduates, where do you find most of them... flipping burgers, with that knowledge not being put to use. I say people need to wake up and see what's going on here. That's just me. And, I'm pretty sure I'll get some bad reviews for writing this, but hey, somebody's eyes might be open to see outside the box here.
The money used for going to school, can be put to starting up the business of your choice. This sort of thing is not taught in school, but believe me it's easier than it may seem. If a person can struggle so hard to go through school, why not struggle to be the TOP, and own your own business; getting vacation when you want, collecting all the money; it is freedom. People are programmed in a certain way. And, I don't say this to offend, I'm just saying these things to wake people up. See, if I can do it, anyone can. I started my business at the age of 21. I learned and worked under my mother's computer repair shop for about 5 years. After that, I moved out, got my own place and run my business from my home which is in a commercial area.
No college degree required, just a strong work ethic, and common sense.
Many jobs in the oilfield offer the same range in money and do not require you to in debt yourself to a degree.
As of today I have grossed over $65,000 since January, and I took last month off...........
Am at that dollar a minute, sounds like quite a bit til you get there. Taxes take a pretty big bite, and after that, basic maintenance expenses for all the obligations you accumulate over time and you end up w/not all that much more expendable income than when was at lot lower income.
Sure, I am lucky to not have to worry so much about paying the bills, can save some and decide at the grocery store based on quality and taste rather than on what I can afford, but still have to be very careful not to spend more than I make on stuff I don't need, and wait to buy til have cash rather than to cave in and do it via credit so the banks don't suck off the fruits of my hard work and my quality of life gets stuck at something no better than someone making a fraction of what I make. I know from personal experience that a higher salary doesn't equate to more happiness. Some of the happiest memories of my life are from the carefree days working at minimum wage.
