I would suggest dental hygienist (different than dental assistant). The ones I know are doing very well...able to support their children, homeowner, travel, and put aside savings.
Disclaimer; you probably bought back when footloose was a new movie

You are absolutely right! I got my BS at 30.. but could not get the right job correlate with the degree. I went back grad school at 45.. and I have been enjoying my career in Healthcare. I really did enjoy the time while in grad school.

Your comment makes absolutely no sense. I am addressing the current year & the current economy. Please return to your video game.

You mentioned that a dental hygenicist can buy a house. And I said sure! In 1984.

well if you look at your reference, you should read it- that's overall nationally

Look at this instead
Summary Occupational Guide
This averages those in Ca, not nationwide and being that this discussion is in Ca and one of the higher paying regions of Ca, it would make more sense.
