People working in management earn the highest annual salary of any common profession in the United States, according to a report from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The report, which was based on data from May 2014, examined the annual wages of the 22 occupations with the most employment in the United States.

Workers in management have a median annual wage of $97,230, with workers at the tenth percentile earning $46,000 and workers in the ninetieth percentile earning $187,000.

Computer/mathematical, legal, and architecture/engineering occupations also have median annual wages above $75,000.

The occupations with the largest number of workers in the US are retail salespersons and cashiers; the two occupations combine to make up nearly 6% of total employment.
