what kind of job can I get with a high school degree?

I've been out of high school for two years and currently making a measly $10.50/hr with no options for overtime. this kid I used to be friends with just posted on facebook that he makes $26/hr and will be working two weeks of overtime next month, and that his checks are $1,000/week. this kid only just graduated this past summer. how is it that he could possibly be making that much with no training or additional education whatsoever? I was rather comfortable with my job for the time being til I saw that kids status. From what I remember this kid isn't good at anything. He's not very smart, he's selfish, and he's had surgery, so he's not physically capable of doing a lot of things. I don't understand how someone two years younger, and of much less value to any business could be making more than twice as much as me. The only thing I can think is that he's a state worker and will g******d off eventually, which I wouldn't want to do. It's either that, or this kid's lying out his ass. but if anyone finds any truth to his claim, plz let me know because I could really use the extra $600/week.
