For some American workers, salary is a top priority when it comes to finding a steady job. But not everyone is satisfied with a job that simply pays the bills. Instead, many American workers opt for jobs that provide deep, intrinsic meaning and in turn make them feel generally good about the work that they do. And although these feel-good jobs don’t always pay the highest salaries, these workers still feel strongly that their job makes the world a better place. Using data collected from over five hundred thousand workers, PayScale found out what the most feel-good job titles are in America, and how much workers in these jobs tend to earn.
