What are the best paying jobs right now?
I just finished high school and I'm looking for a trade I could get into in a short period of time. What sort of jobs should I look into that make $20+. I live in CA and the job market is kind of lack luster. I don't have the money (or the grades) for a real collage. Anyone one know of a legitimate vocational school in the northern California area?

you could go to a community college, they generally offer class where you could get a certificate as a medical assistant or a cna or a nurse's assistant. Although there are a few hospitals layoff right now with that type of certificate there are other options in the private sector for you. Good luck.
