I agree Rabbi. I live in the North East and I am personal friends with a local police Sgt. He makes ~115k. His wife, an ICU nurse with seniority makes about the same~110k. After overtime, they MAY be approaching 250k, but even that's a stretch. And we are talking the North Ease here, some of the best hospitals and highest paid cops. So it is not 'easily' done as previously stated.
