The jobs where you could be making more money, in one chart

If you wonder whether you're over- or underpaid at your job, here's one place to start. Reddit user Dan Lin has created one (very long) chart that shows 820 US occupations and how much they pay.

Check it out below, or click on the image for a version where you can zoom in.
