Money.

Entire sports arenas can be filled with all that has been written about it. You could spend the rest of your life watching online videos about it. Some people want enough to cover the basics. Others want every bit of it that exists in the universe for themselves. But everyone thinks about it.

There are even fantastic one-liners about it.

  • “A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?” Father replied, “I don’t know son, I’m still paying.””
  • “If you think nobody cares whether you’re alive, try missing a couple of payments.”
  • “That awkward moment when you leave a store without buying anything and all you can think is “act natural, you’re innocent”.”

When it comes to finding a job and/or establishing a career path, money certainly plays a major part. Whether you are starting out or exploring a possible change, what the next job pays is something you will definitely consider. With that in mind, here are the companies with the top salaries in the USA.
