If you make an hourly wage, you may not know how much you could potentially earn in a year. Let's say you make $25 an hour and work 40 hours a week year-round. That comes out to about $52,000 a year, a nice amount, especially considering it's roughly equivalent to the median annual household income in the U.S.

If getting a paycheck like that sounds good to you, consider any of these nine jobs, all of which make around $25 an hour.
