Then don't call them the average joe. The average person makes much less in their life time it is only the slim majority that make 100+k a year. Also according http://www.livingin-canada.com/salar...rs-canada.html to this average income of a welder is between 45-55k depending on the province. I think your idea of average is skewed as the vast majority of the population make less, much less than the players you are describing.
