Number 7 is horrible out dated. As it turns out I highly suggest you take a look at the federal aviation regulation part 61 Certification: pilots, flight instructors, and ground instructors. Specifically if you take a look at support 153 subpart G which deals with Eligibility requirements for Airline transport pilots. There is a lot more then just your "high school" diploma and your pilots license. Most U.S. airline now require at a minimum of a bachelors degree. Oh and not to mention that the pilot license might set you back a half a million or so dollars. I would consult with people in the fields to make sure your information is true. Now although pilots end up making 6 figure salaries, starting pay for most airline pilots is anywhere from $20,000 to $40,000 a year. It isn't until you have had years of experience and thousands of hours of flight time that you make 6 figure salaries, even as a co-pilot. It has been my dream to fly since I was a kid and now that I got my license I and very grateful for the opportunities. I have a long road a head of me but I have had wonderful instructors that have flown with the airlines/ are flying with the airlines. Make no mistake they would tell you exactly what I am telling you right now. Get you information right from a credible source before blindly lie to people. You may have had a reasonable source for this information however this mistake is something near and dear to my heart that I can not just let it go. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. All good intentions are being made here and no feelings are meant to be disrupted.

Don't know where you got your information from but funeral directors average about $28,000 a year right out of mortuary college. Then after years you might get up to $42,000 a year but you work your butt off.

Based on the statements in this article, if like to see the source material about funeral directors that supports a salary of $50+/hr. Without it, I'll have to throw the "BS flag" on this.

Having been in the industry in all positions from employee to owner, these numbers don't add up!

# Meryl

Where did you get these salaries?? I'd like to know what country pays that. NOBODY I know in the US or Canada in any of those fields is making anywhere close to those figures. I see you have a sister company that offers online degrees...any chance you're bumping up the numbers trying to get people to sign up for degrees for these jobs that do NOT pay these figures even for someone who's been doing it for 20 years or better??? Just so ya know..some of these jobs require actual hand's on lab work and a 1 or 2 year apprenticeship before you can get your license. This is not a degree you can get online. Read the fine print people and do your own research. This is a scam.

Working in the funeral industry for many years I have not made nor have I met anyone who made $50 an hour. Where the heck did you get your numbers. This isn't anywhere near what the average funeral director makes. Nor do adult day care coordinators make money like this. I volunteer in just such a situation and the wonderful woman who is in charge makes about the same as I do.

Optometry is a great job and I love it. This description leaves out a very critical part of the eduction process. Optometry school is four years, however, before you can enter this doctoral degree program, you also require a bachelors degree. Therefore you're looking at 8 years of school.

Where did you get your information about funeral director/ embalmer salaries? I am a 17 year licensed funeral director and I've never met ANYONE who has gotten much past the 25 an hour mark. Management in some companies may come close to this, but your average funeral director and embalmer ( I am licensed as both with the degree) does not even come close to this. Where did you mine your data?

Co-pilot.. Umm yeah I think not... Only way you're making that kind of money being in the right seat is if you're an EX military pilot and flying for one of the national air. I.e. Delta, Southwest, united, fedEx or UPS. Other wise if you go through the civil way you're spending over 60+k just to get the proper certs and 1500hrs of PIC time. Then you get hired in at around 20,000 a year with some regional airline and might be lucky to get captain after 4-5 years and then might make 75k a year. Do that for another 5-10 years and then you might make it to a national air as co-pilot making 55-75k to start. Ohh and getting into FedEX or UPS not going to happen if you don't have a degree.

Co-pilots make 52.45 and only need a pilots license? BS!!!!

You also need 5000 flight hours which you get at smaller airlines, where you make 18K a year, while you pay off your student loans which are close to 95K cause guess what getting your pilots license ATP which is required means you need your private, then your instrument, then your commercial then 1500 flight hours then your ATP.

# Christine

Hi I am a Funeral Director and Embalmer in New York and i would like to know where you got your information from that Funeral Directors/ Embalmers make $50 an hour? The only directors i know that make that kind of money is the owner of the funeral home. A fully licensed funeral director and Embalmer just starting out only makes about $20 an hour depending of course in which funeral home you work and if it's family owned or a corporate owned funeral home. Most people do not enter this business because they think they are going to make 6 figures a year and be rich, they do it because they absolutely love this job and their heart and soul is in it to help families.
# Scott

Which can be done for business or commercial enterprises or even public events and parties.

If you think these numbers are wrong, you are clearly unintelligent and accept terrible pay from your employer. After researching each position, you can find MANY people making MORE than what this shows in every single one of those fields. If you are not making 50$ or more an hour with these fields and credentials, you clearly have no clue how to sell yourself and have no idea what you are doing with yourself. Maybe sign up for a life choice course instead of complaining on here.

I am a former site superintendent. Staring salary was roughly $50,000/year. Once you get down to the actual hours worked, that equates to approximately $13.00/hour. I got a raise 6 months into it and that boosted me to almost $14.00/hour. No thanks, the stress is not worth the pay. I managed many multi-million dollar projects and I know people that still work for said company. Most are now at $75,000/year but are working through divorce, alcoholism, traveling to other states for work, etc. Not worth it to me. Just my two cents.

Well all these people that think these are job listings are clearly unemployed or underemployed for a reason. They either lack comprehension skills or an understanding of the basic English language. Hopefully this list, however inaccurate some of it may be, will encourage those folks to pursue a new career path. Since they have the Internet, hopefully they will find a way to a better education and security of their own.
Saturday, October 17, 2015 4:57 PM
LMAO dude this is all wrong foreman make around 18-30 an hour
co pilots and funeral directors are lucky to come out with 30k a year seismology is not only a hard job to obtain but pays by the job normally not an hourly wage still no where near 50 though the only one that comes close to these numbers would be an optometrist and even then they would have to be a soul practitioner so wrong and so miss informing, the only way to make those kinda figures is be a sole proprietor or partner of a business, or a CFO or CEO of a corporation, and possibly maybe a a head of departments in some industries but none of those industries are listed here
