Are you desperately looking to max out your leisure hours and still make bank when you do have to work?

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics has a list of part-time jobs that pay almost triple the $7.25 federal minimum pay. The best part: Job opportunities in those occupations are projected to grow faster in the next ten years than other business or occupations, and a four-year degree is not a must for most of them.

BLS found 19 part-time jobs that give more than $20 an hour using the data from the National Compensation Survey. We threw out any that needed more than a bachelor’s degree or that were expected to have fewer jobs and positions by 2024 to save you some time. As you’ll observe, many of these jobs are in the healthcare field. Also, it’s one of three sectors with lots of open jobs.
