Household Income: $85, 824
No surprise that Washington, D.C. with its lawyers, lobbyists, and politicians comes out on top as the city with the highest income earners in America. It’s been ranked as the
best city for lawyers, the
fourth-best city to earn a living, and its teachers are the
highest paid in the nation. Although there is a high median income, CNN’s Money ranked the city as the
fifth-highest in job listings over $100,000, which suggests the city could have a large income disparity.
