You understand that the reason why Arabic and Pashto speakers receive so much money is that they are going to be working in a combat zone where they may be killed, don't you?

Furthermore, most of those high paying jobs require you to be a US citizen with an ability to receive a security clearance. Also, those are translator jobs, not Java jobs.

Well, I don't know if it has anything to do with combat pay, but something tells me that it is just a keyword search -- and not qualified.

For example, in the case of English, why would english even be mentioned in a high paying job posting in the US? It would just be assumed. The only time I can envision the "english" requirement is for either (1) english related jobs, such as teaching english as a second language, or (2) where cases, where people assume that english may not be required.

Al hamd-u-llah! Time to dust off the Arabic textbook!

Can I sum the salaries of all the languages I know? That'd be another $56K
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
