What does one N.C. truck driver earn?

"What People Earn," PARADE's yearly salary report featuring Americans' salaries from coast to coast, will be packaged in this Sunday's Observer ... and it'll have a bit of local flavor: Sean Nelson, a 43-year-old truck driver from Charlotte who earns $61,000 annually, is in this year's report.

In addition to Nelson, the issue will feature a glassblower from Waterbury Center, Vt., who earns $59,700; a NYC celebrity stylist who earns $150,000; a blogger from Vancouver, Wash., who earns $24,600; a tattoo artist from New Orleans, who earns $40,000, and a dance studio owner from Richmond, Tex., who earns $100,000; and many more.

Beginning later this week, visit Parade.com/realpeople for more real people and their salaries.
