17. Hot Dog Cart Vendor: Around $100,000 Per Year
It might not seem so glamorous to roam the streets of New York City, Washington, D.C., or any other boisterous metropolitan hub selling hot dogs and other street food. But as we all know, appearances can be deceptive— – vendors often end up making some serious cash.
These carts that have become an integral part of the American city’s natural habitat earn an average of $100,000 per year. Tell that to a journalism or psychology student and they might reconsider their time spent in school. But these vendors work long, hard hours to cart their cash. Truthfully, they deserve every penny.
