While salary isn’t always the main reason why someone looks for a job, it’s usually at least a factor. People like to know that the money they’ll be making will cover their financial obligations and allow them to live comfortably.
Everyone has a different idea of what their ideal salary would be, but many people would likely be very happy making $100,000-plus. If you have a job that pays $50 an hour and you work the standard 40-hour workweek for 52 weeks, you can make around $104,000. If that sounds appealing, consider the following eight jobs that can provide that paycheck.
