Median doesn’t mean average. “Mean” means average. “Median” means middle. Example: 25, 50, 100 Median=50 Mean=58.3
Need an editor or proofreader? 😛

Great list. I’d like to have seen more depth than just a list for the lowest paid jobs, though. Let’s face it, these folks could use the recognition. They work the hardest and get paid the least in both money and respect. The world is so backwards.

I have worked fast food and as a cashier and you don’t even make close to what they have listed. I also work as a medical assistant for an optometrist and am barely making $15,000…maybe its just Michigan??

Why is this added? Why not look at decisions left-handed people and right-handed people make? If you look at the 10 lowest paying jobs and 10 highest paying jobs and think about whether women or men choose to do them, you might see NO reason to adjust your expectations no matter what your race/gender. With the recent news that 57% of college grads are women, expect this number to be flipped upside down as they reach the 10-15 year experience level. To “expect” lower pay as suggested is disingenious to say the least and only continues to fuel the “victim” status leveled at women…Women are as strong and as independent as men and if they choose a profession, they will be paid the same as men. Or more appropriately stated, if a man chooses to work in the same field as a woman with the same experience and education, he will make the same as her. No reason to adjust expectation due to gender if you choose a field that pays more. If you average all waitresses and doctors salaries, you’ll see doctors make more. Women doctors make more than women waitresses as well, but the number falls in the mean due to the number of men/women in those two fields. By saying adjust your expectations is saying no matter what you choose, if you’re female, you’ll make less. NOTHING could be further from the truth. Be careful with the way you analyze data!

Dentists make around $140,000 a year on average so that’s quite a bit more than some of the jobs on here.
