The Highest-Paying Job In Every State
If you want to make money in America right now, go to medical school.

Anesthesiologist is the job with the highest-paying average salary nationwide ($235,070), while surgeon was the highest-paying occupation in more states (9) than any other job.
The highest average salary in any state was found in Wisconsin, where orthodontists make $252,390 a year.
In three states, the BLS ranked the highest-paying job as "physicians and surgeons, all other," a catch-all category used to cover doctors whose specialties don't fall under one of the Bureau's pre-existing categories.
