What job makes more, paralegal or x-ray technician? Which one is more in demand?

I hoping to become a lawyer, but my mom says that during my undergrad years, being an x-ray technician would be better because it makes more money. I don't know how much more, but when i weight out the pros and cons of each job, it seems to become more confusing. For instance, being a x-ray technician could be more money, but it moves me farther away from being a lawyer because i have to go for 2 years of studying material that is not applicable to becoming a lawyer. Being an x-ray technician does not as much time for schooling as would becoming a paralegal, but you're exposed to radiation which could hurt my longevity. Being a paralegal would give me experience in law and would benefit my resume, but it doesn't make as much money as an x-ray technician. Paralegals are not in as much demand as x-ray technicians. I'm confused. Also could you tell me what the difference between getting an associate degree for being a paralegal differs from getting a bachelors?
