US News, ever the list maker, has come out with its list of the 100 best jobs in 2014. Lawyers are #51. The authors report that:
Lawyers earned a median salary of $113,530 in 2012, according to the BLS. The best-paid earned more than $187,999, while the lowest-paid made approximately $54,310. The highest earners worked in the metropolitan areas of San Jose, Calif., Dothan, Ala., and San Francisco.
I'm thinking folks like this are pushing up average incomes in this town of 65,000.
