The 15 Cities With the Most Jobs That Pay $100,000 or More

In order to be considered “upper class” in the United States a household of two needs to earn over $102,001, a family of four needs to bring in more than $144,251 and a family of five needs to rake in over $161,277 a year. And in order to earn these six-figure salaries, workers probably need to move to a major city.

Even with unemployment at just 4 percent, workers are still waiting for wage growth across the country but select cities are boasting sky-high salaries.
