What’s Hot: “Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the postmen from their appointed rounds.” Previously unrewarded efforts are beginning to pay off for postal workers. As of May 2009, “Postal Service: Clerks” ($50,150), “Mail Carriers” ($46,970) and “Mail Sorters, Processors, and Processing Machine Operators” ($45,490) are the top, third and fourth spots on the Best Paid list of the Office and Administrative Support occupational group. Della Street of “Perry Mason” and Susan Ruttan of “LA Law” fame would also take heart that “Executive Secretaries and Administrative Assistants” place fifth with an annual average at $42,340.

What’s Not: Call or arrive anytime and the “Hotel, Motel, and Resort Desk Clerks” are there to help. Problem is, their average annual income figure ($20,630) often leaves their bank accounts with vacancy. Also underappreciated are the “Stock Clerks and Order Fillers” ($23,140), “Tellers” ($ 24,250) and “Library Assistants, Clerical” ($24,290), who follow on the Least Paid list.
