Twenty-Five Dollars an Hour

Yahoo recently ran a story entitled “Surprising Jobs that Pay $25 an Hour.” The author writes,

But you don’t necessarily need a post-graduate degree to qualify for a job that pays several hundred dollars a day. While it may be true that helicopter pilots, high-tech administrators, and civil engineers earn $25 an hour or more, so do many other professionals in careers that require only an associate or bachelor’s degree to leap onto the playing field.

The jobs listed are electrical and electronic engineering technician, human resources recruiter, paralegal, respiratory therapist, police officer, advertising sales agent, and interior designer.
One profession that certainly qualifies, but was wrongfully omitted from the list: street prostitute.
