THE BEST AND WORST PAYING JOBS

As I was reading the news this morning, one article really caught my attention. "THE BEST AND WORST PAYING JOBS IN.......AMERICA!!!". I know that this list is meant for Americans but since America is one of the country that holds the world economy, so perhaps this list might be true to many other countries. So let us see who tops the chart ^_^

THE BEST PAYING JOBS IN AMERICA: 

No. 1 Best-Paying Job: Anesthesiologists

Average Annual Pay: $234,950
Employees in Field: 33,310

No. 2 Best-Paying Job: Surgeons                                                  

Average Annual Pay: $231,550
Employees in Field: 42,340

No. 3 Best-Paying Job: Obstetricians and Gynecologists

Average Annual Pay: $218,610

No. 5 Worst-Paying Job: Counter Attendants, Cafeteria, Food Concession, and Coffee Shop

Average Annual Pay: $19,450
Employees in Field: 441,830


So, as you can see ..."surprise surprise" the top 5 best paying jobs go to occupations in the medical field. Not very surprising isn't it? Doctors’ salaries are so high not only because of supply and demand but also to offset the amounts they have to invest in education and malpractice insurance. The 33,310 anesthesiologists in the U.S. also work long shifts and play an integral role in keeping patients alive during surgery to earn their sizable salaries. According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), the high pay reflects the responsibility and risk involved in their job.

          That is in fact very true. Why? Because doctors or rather say people in the medical field, they are dealing with human lives. Not something that we can experiment and play every day. One wrong move, can cost a human life. But people please, if you want to be in this field, make sure it is not about the money.

         Make sure it is something that you truly want to do. Not just something that you are forced to do or expected to do. Whatever job you take, make sure you'll enjoy doing it. Because if you don't, then what's the point.

MONEY CAN'T BUY EVERYTHING
