The Young Turks: A University of Maryland student covers her tuition costs (and then some) by taking a train to New York every other weekend to work as an exotic dancer, according to a story from WMAR Baltimore. She makes about $180,000 a year. (Payscale says the typical annual income range for an exotic dancer is anywhere from $20,000 to $142,000.)
Six figures for working every other weekend? That's pretty fantastic. This might not be the job choice for everyone — including some of the roughly 20 million college students in the U.S — but Maggie (who didn't give the TV station her last name), seems more than happy with her choice. She has to have plenty of spending money, too: Tuition at the University of Maryland was $23,581 this year for state residents. It was $42,767 for out-of-state students."* Ana Kasparian, Dave Rubin (The Rubin Report) and Gina Grad (Gina Grad Show, Pretty Good Podcast) break it down on The Young Turks.
