3. Orthotists and Prosthetists Are Switched On
$5,890 Monthly Salary ($1,954 Above Average)
Our bodies are remarkable in their ability to repair themselves, but sometimes we need a little extra help. Orthotists design and repair supportive devices that correct problems in the body (muscles, bones and nerves), whilst prosthetists work with artificial limbs. It takes a bright spark to help patients find their independence again.
Despite rising energy costs, the extra salary you receive above the national average for 1 month will be enough to turn on the lights and feed your electrical appliances for almost 18 months, based on the average monthly electricity bill of $110 in the most recent statistics.
