4. Nuclear Power Reactor Operator: $79,100 median salary
Since nuclear power reactor operators work with highly sensitive equipment, they need an understanding of physics and engineering, as well as active learning and troubleshooting skills. The higher pay correlates to the highly specialized skill set required.
7. Air Traffic Controller: $60,200
Although the job doesn't require a college degree, the FAA screens prospective air traffic controllers with a pre-employment test and other requirements, so it's a competitive field. The job might entail monitoring aircraft, issuing take-off and landing instructions, and directing ground traffic.
Yikes... I read number 4 and immediately think of Homer Simpson. Do we really want Nuclear Power Reactor Operators like Homer?

Like you said, the first reminds me of Homer Simpson and the second reminds me of John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton in "Pushing Tin". Great movie!
