Thanks so much.

Requirements for education vary by state. Which state are you asking about?

Average wages:

For the last many years (including 1985), the U.S. has not required any specific number of years of education. In most states the legal age to quit school was 16 in 1985. Apparently this age has been raised in some states since then.

Check this site for wages.

For the wages website you provided, I don't understand how they calculated the values. I was looking for dollar per hour amount.
