What’s Hot: If financial reward is a motivating force, the Management occupational group can be extremely lucrative. All occupations listed in this section’s Best Paid list’s top 18 have a mean annual wage over $100,000. The top ten positions all are above $122,000 annually.
What’s Not: Legislators officially represent the Least Paid of the occupations averaging $44,820. This can be somewhat ‘unrepresentative’, however, as many positions are part-time and the legislators make significant sums during their ‘off hours’ as for example, lawyers and investment bankers. Consider also, that in the 2016 survey (updated in March 2017) the fifth lowest paying occupation in this group -- Property, Real Estate, and Community Association Managers -- still did quite well, with a mean annual wage over $70,000 ($70,290). This is definitely a well-compensated group.
