You need to have a six figure job already to get any job on that list. This was just silly reporting.

No one who is just starting in a profession has earned the right to join the 6 figure group. Period. That said, some 1st year associates in big law pull those numbers.

Yep, big law will pay it. But those people are also paying big student loans and working horrible hours, so it's hardly worth it. (Says the wife of a big law associate who just encouraged her husband to take a big pay cut to work a more reasonable job.)

I'll stick to my under $100,000 job that has flexible schedule, work 40-45 hours a week and get every single weekend off.

There are jobs out there that pay six figures that you don't have to work crazy hours. Pharmacist start out making six figures (their job is in high demand) and I doubt they work crazy hours.
