We had that same burning desire to know more about the highest paid professions in the San Antonio area. And if you can’t tell by that sentence, we’re a bit of what you’d call data nerds.
We decided to go directly to the source: The Bureau of Labor Statistics.
After scrounging through the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we discovered that Psychiatrists are the highest paid people in San Antonio.
Here’s a quick look at the top ten highest paying jobs in San Antonio:
Everyone’s favorite, dentists, place number 6 on the list of highest paid professions in San Antonio. So the next time you sit there while they drill you can dwell on the fact that they are getting extremely well paid for it.
