Occupations, Careers, Jobs that pay relatively well without College? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

My guess is that most of those people are working relatively technical union jobs and have been doing so for enough years to receive a few raises. I can't think of many jobs that people actually aspire to have that pay well without at least a skilled trade or college degree. Look it up. I'm sure that you can find some lists. Not to mention, people's egos are tied so closely to their jobs that even if they made $70K WITHOUT a college degree, they'd probably still feel insecure about the type of job that they work.

 

EDIT:

 

Type fixed (from "with only" to "without")

Although I'll admit I'm guilty of my ego being tied to my career, upon reflection it seems stupid.

Regardless of what they say, everyone wants to be liked and cares about what other people think. Jobs and education are a pretty big part of that. They show people what you're doing with your life, so people tend to be sensitive about those things. That's why so many guys grow up wanting to be lawyers and doctors.

trashmen make decent money, and they get to be outside
