What are some high paying jobs with only highschool?

I live in Alberta, I know the obvious answer is oilfeild work. But it's for my boyfriend who is 20. He has had the same job since he was 16 and so finding a high paying full time job is difficult because of his lack of experience. He did his first year of commerce but has since given up on post-secondary. Any ideas or suggestions? I just finished a two year program and I am making awesome money in the insurance industry. What can I suggest to him since he cannot commit to school?

The only real way to earn a living with just a high school diploma is to start your own business. What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing? Use these strengths/passions to identify a business. Although, I still recommend that you further your education.

Your boyfriend needs to get his butt in school. If you can't honestly think of any high paying jobs for an uneducated person, the answer is: there aren't any! Unless of course he goes into oilfield work, becomes a movie star/sports star or inherits a crapload of money.
