10 Careers that Top USD30 per Hour

Apparently the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that there are 10 careers that can secure the income of USD60,000 or more, annually. USD60,000 annually is equal to USD30 per hour. Or it's like RM100/hour in Malaysia. I know I can't compare it straight forward because of the currency exchange, bla bla bla. But this is just a comparison of the jobs with the pay these people get. Don't understand? Read more below.

It is also reported by the U.S. Census Bureau that the latest figure for median household income in the U.S. is at $50,233 (in Bahasa Melayu it is called pendapatan per kapita). Do you know what is our household median income or pendapatan per kapita bagi rakyat Malaysia?

From the source of Berita Harian for Bajet 2009:

"Pendapatan per kapita pula dijangka berkembang 5.6 peratus mencecah AS$17,549 (2008: 14.7 peratus; AS$16,617). "

Here, we still get shit pays. RM4/hour? A serious fucking joke.
