Where do people earn the biggest paychecks? Houston, for one.

2 posts in this topic

Houston's reputation as a low-wage mecca may be fading. It comes in at number 5.

To find the cities where people earn the largest and smallest paychecks, we turned to Payscale.com, a site that has collected salary and career data from more than 35 million people. They looked at compensation data for professionals in the 100 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas (based on 2010 population estimates by the Census), and provided us with median pay for workers who hold at least a bachelor’s degree, across three experience levels: starting (5 or less years of experience), mid-career (10 or more years of experience) and overall (all years of experience).

No. 1 Best-Paying City: San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif.

Overall median pay: $93,100

Starting median pay: $68,600

Mid-career median pay: $128,000

I'll send that to the HR guy, but I doubt my income will be raised above a semi-slave level.
