With your apparent work ethic and research skills, I would say flipping burgers...

construction and other forms of manual labor.
with only a high school degree, you wont make
much without breaking your back - and even then
you wont make alot.

you could also be a waiter.
tips or manual labor.

Landscaping. Lots of money. People pay companies fuckloads of cash for the simplest of jobs, and even if you get half of what they normally pay, you usually make out with $15-$20/hr.

The only downside is winter sucks and I've been somewhat of a broke ass mofo. Not much snow!!

go with a carpentry union. i am in classes now. the starting pay is between $18-$20Hr for your first 4 years (you need to apprentice to whatever field you are in) then after that you will make $38-$40 and hour. i mean its not the best jobs in the world but it pays out the ass and has a ton of benefits. my g/f dad is the one that got me into his union classes. this is in IL though. i am only 18 years old and i tried college and it wasn't for me. but with this job i can make just as much or even more than i could have with a degree. And also after you are in it for so many years you get a fixed income of like 1000 a week plus whatever you make working.

Construction here starts $25/hr for four year apprenticeship (they pay you to go to school) and goes to about $50 with awesome bennies.

It really is a good job. i mean you could easily make over $100,000 a year if you do it long enough

Factory work, but you will soon get sick of that.

I agree with the construction suggestion. Union machine opr., electrician, pipe fitter, carpenter, tin knocker,in that descending order. 60-100K in NYC... no problem. There is good money to be made non-union,....but you have to actually WORK.Me personally, I'm either before or after the construction part...DEMOLITION and WRECKING!!

Are you near a big city? If f yes, which one? Do you know any body in construction? A family member or friend helps. Any similar work experience or knowledge? Check which Locals are near you. Some apprentice programs are listed in help wanted.

My bro made a lot of money working in the summers selling pest control door to door. He didn't have to work when school was in. I'm talking 30K to 40K in 3 months, and some of his coworkers made upward of 80K in a summer.

look into x-ray technition jobs at hospitals. Usually there are 6 month courses, give or take. it wouldnt be immediate, but the pay off is high. No special skills required, just a couple classes. I hear the pay is outrageous. I dont know the details, and this is all word of mouth, but its worth lookin in to.

Good luck.

Work in a video game store... especially if you are only doing this for the summer, until school starts. You won't make much money, but you'll be able to steal all the video games you want, thus saving 1,000's of dollars!! Take them to school in the fall, and re-sell them!! Genius!!

I looked into my palm and saw what we had feared the most
The mouse had gnawed into the frond while they had sought the GHOST
The blender's better blunder blurred the butter's bluish hue
My sugar cube exploded, tiny shrapnel blinded YOU!

Don't panic! There's more. Just ask!

if you have a car and don't live in the country get a job delivering pizza's, it's not hard and you don't have to train longer than one night. the pay here was 5.15 an hour and 75 cents a delivery + tips and i've taken $200 home in a night when i used to do it, you would at least take home $40 and average was $75-100 a night in tips plus a nice paycheck every two weeks.
