Top Paying Jobs In America

$25-an-hour Jobs

By Mary Lorenz, CareerBuilder.com writer

If you get paid a salary, you probably don't give much thought to what you make on an hourly basis. Either the thought is too depressing ("That's all I make per hour?"), produces too much guilt ("That's how much the company spends every time I take a 'little' break to watch YouTube videos?"), or simply doesn't occur to you. That said, $25 an hour may not sound like much, until you realize that the median household salary is $46,326 according to the 2005 U.S. Census Bureau, and that breaks down to about $22.27 per hour for a 40-hour work week.

So who's making more than the average American at $25 an hour?
1. Market analyst -- $27.18/hour
Market analysts work in government agencies, consulting firms, financial institutions or marketing research firms, where they research and predict the sales potential of a particular product or service. A bachelor's degree is the minimum requirement for many jobs; however, a master's degree in a field such as business administration, marketing, statistics or communications will provide more opportunities.
Average annual salary: $56,541*

2. Chemist -- $25.16/hourChemists search for and use knowledge about chemicals to discover and develop new and improved products, processes to save energy and reduce pollution, and advances in fields like medicine and agriculture.

Average annual salary: $52,333

Hi, I am a speech-language pathologistis in PA and I wanted to comment about the info you posted. As far as I know, every speech-language pathologist has to complete a 4 year bachelor's program and a 1 1/2 year master's program. Also, I know the salary's listed are average but I work for a school district and make $10,000 less than your listed salary.
