Kyle Maynard, an award-winning public speaker, author and athlete living with a disability revealed that his yearly income falls in the $200,000 range.

When asked if he loves his job replied, "I love it a lot. I've got the best job in the world, I get to go and get people fired up about life."

In one viral video with 1.7 million views, a high school teacher with 22 years of experience revealed he only makes $50,000 a year, although he said his job was "very rewarding."

People in the comments felt that given his experience he was underpaid. One top comment with more than 12,000 likes reads, "22 years of experience should be at least 80K."

Especially if you compare the cost of living in Atlanta to cities like Miami, Florida, where housing costs are 27.4% more expensive, according to data from Best Places.
