Here Are 14 Ridiculous Jobs That Pay More Than Being A Teacher

Teachers are widely under-appreciated in America, both in how little respect they receive AND in how little they are compensated for their deeds. If kids are our future, we should take care of the people grooming them for the future, right? Well, the average starting salary for a teacher is around $45,000. There are much more lucrative (albeit superfluous) professions out there, let’s examine a few.

1) Hot Air Balloon Pilot – $50-60k

2) Tollbooth Worker – $46-50k

3) Butler – $47-55k

4) Radio DJ – $50-65k

5) Pro Skateboarder – $50-100k

6) Bull Rider – $100-500k

7) Truck Driver – $45-60k

8) Stripper – $50-150k

9) Dog Walker – $50/hour

10) Pro Bowler – $45-50k
