Typically, a chemical engineer will use science to process chemicals and raw materials into useful ways. Computer Engineers are professionals that are to blame for the addition of hardware and software to design strategies.

For almost 30 years I've

For almost 30 years I've worked in engineering profession in the Las Vegas region. Not receiving a healthy intending civil engineers often believe they will need to go to college to actualize their hopes and dreams.

Nursing

Nursing is much more stressful than people realize. The expectations and demands are incredible. This chart gets the stress factor wrong.  

It is required that both

It is required that both professional and also industry designer sustain consistent connection throughout job. Due to the fact that both have a higher level of obligation the weight of whole task, protection, as well as codes lay upon their shoulders. There are an assortment of tasks involved in the area of building civil designer. As an example, study of digital photography, information, plans, drawings, and also maps are essential for any type of project.

I work as a nurse and the

I work as a nurse and the level of physical and social stress are much, much more than the ratings given here! I also disagree with the level of hiring outlook; there are so many nursing graduates that the demand years ago are no longer the demand these days.

teachers

I work with teachers and I could not agree any more. Teaching is not like it use to be. They get "graded" based on the students' performance on the state exams. They get mistreated and have to attended numerous meeting gs that take away from teaching. You are basically there to do what the principal or your AP wants from you. Its very stressful! You also bring work to your home because there is no time to do it at school.

Sadly teaching is not was it

Sadly teaching is not was it once was. Too much emphasis on teaching to the test . After 5 years in the profession I would not do it again.

Teacher?!

Income of over $50k my foot. Try $20k less than that, getting screamed at by parents and administrators all day, spending way too much of your own money, working over 70 hours per week, and NEVER getting the summers and breaks you're "told" about. It's a waste of an expensive degree. Run -- don't walk -- from teaching in today's society!

longshoremen

Is under Stevedore which I've never heard of!!!

I cannot agree with alot of

I cannot agree with alot of this list. I am a medical laboratory technologist, and the hospital I have most recently worked at has only one tech. covering the afternoon-evening shift. Often the stress level is HUGE. One person often can hardly keep up with the demands, and accurate lab results can be a matter of life and death ie. a mistake typing and cross-matching someones blood who is bleeding to death in the Emergency Room can kill the patient real quick! And it doesn't help when angry doctors keep yelling at you for not giving them the lab results they want fast enough! It all depends on where you work, who you work with, and so many other factors. Also, how can you even state a salary for, say, an author? That's a pretty high number you posted! My friend is an "author" and she's never made a penny! It's not easy to have a book published!! Astronaut? Give me a break.

Attorney

1) There are two kinds of attorneys. Those who went to a top ranked school (i.e., Harvard, Stanford), finished high in their class, and got "BigLaw." Then there's everyone else. It looks like your survey is only counting the first group (who make a majority of the money, but a significant minority of the total population).
2) Hiring Outlook 10.11? L-O-F-L. More like -10.11.

Attorney

I agree with @21:18. HIGH DEBT, oversaturated market, and the pay is closer to 1/3 of what you report.
