As usual, libs confuse the comparison. The comparison above is between professional employment requiring a degree, not between all types of employment. The above analysis, however, only deals with median salaries, but leaves out the benefit packages. Thus, after 3 years out of college, an elementary teacher in my state can expect an average gross salary in the $40,000 range, a lawyer, as a sole practioner, can expect an average a net income (after taxes) of over $55,000. However, when adding in the teacher's benefit plan, which the sole practioner has to provide for himself or herself, then they are comparable. So the above analysis, without the benefit packages that usually come with public employment, is really shallow.

Yes, "gary28", and your amazing use of horrific grammar and multiple exclamation points shows that you're part of the problem.

Teachers show up negatively, because, of their lack of nation wide educational achievments, America is becoming a joke for the rest of the world to laugh at. America is fast becoming the dunce of an educational super power. We have achieved the status of a third world nation in education!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

No confusion there. COnservatives are pretty clear that they think teachers earn too much money, regardless of the comparison point. It's odd that teachers show up negatively in this analysis. The issue of benefits applies to most of those listed here.

Payscale.com analyzed the data in its online salary database and has revealed the college degrees that go along with the jobs that have the lowest median pay for their respective career professionals in its 2012-13 College Salary Report. Note - these figures represent the typical annual combination of pay, bonuses, commissions and profit sharing earned by people who have been successful in working in these fields for at least 10 years and were willing to participate in Payscale.com's survey, which means the reported median incomes will likely be inflated...
