In New Jersey we were ranked as the 4th highest paid state in the nation…the median salary per person is about 75K a year.  However, there are some that are making WAY more than that.  I'm pretty nosey so I wanted to see how much money some of these ballers actually made.  One of my daughters is going into college in two years and I told her to look at this list and pick one!  Listen kids, that’s a little something called return on investment.

Ever wonder what your dentist makes? Your kids' doctor or the guy who built the building you work in? We got the goods because I know you are nosey as I am.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics updates this info regularly so I'll keep you up to date!  Is it too late to change careers?  Maybe or maybe not but if you have kids keep this list handy so when they answer the question, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" You can help them by explaining a few of these jobs!
