If you don't mind, what field is that, that 20-somethings can make 80-120k/yr with no HS degree? I've know a number of entrepreneurial individuals to be very successful with only a HS degree (my father, for example), but I can't think of a field where half the people would do that well, particularly in the South. Just curious.
