It's All About The Benjamins

CBS MarketWatch has issued an article about the Top 10 most overpaid jobs in America. Reading it was enough to make even me, a moderately well-paid Silicon Valley software executive, green with envy.

* Wedding photographers who shoot 2 weddings per weekend from May to October can make $75-100,000 for 50 days of work.

* West Coast dockworkers earn $136,000 per year for entering shipping records into computers.

* Airport skycaps can make over $100,000 per year, with 70% of that income in cash.

* Orthodontists make an average of $350,000 per year for a 35-hour workweek, and don't even have to hassle with insurance like doctors or dentists.
