23. Elevator Mechanic: Around $79,000 Per Year
In the modern world, we’ve all come to believe that the only way to make good money is by first getting a college degree. Indeed, we’re even told bachelor’s degrees don’t cut it anymore – master’s degrees and PhDs are the way of the future.
The fact is, that’s not entirely true. The average elevator mechanic makes almost $80,000 per year. The best part is that elevator and escalator mechanics don’t need a specific college degree before signing onto the job, rather vocational training and apprenticeships are all the buzz. It’s not uncommon these days for millennials to complain about having to sit in an office all day. Well, this might just be the solution for them.
