With a few exceptions, traditional Catholics tend to have less money per capita than Novus Ordo Catholics. Perhaps it is because the Novus Ordo is more embracing of the modern world, and doesn't require separation from it?
It's a phenomenon I've observed countless times, and I've been a traditional Catholic my whole life. Even seminary professors brought up the topic -- how many traditional Catholic men were only into sports, hunting and fishing, etc. and didn't aspire to a "profession" like psychology, lawyer, accountant, doctor, professor, etc.
Perhaps it's because a traditional Catholic knows instinctively how apart he is from the world, and how hard it is to be a faithful Catholic and live among pagans.
And some careers, like psychologist, would be very difficult to maintain without compromising one's morals. Psychologists are instructed -- sometimes with the full force of law -- to tell sodomites that nothing is wrong with their behavior.
I'm sure lawyers would have similar problems, although a lawyer CAN specialize in a safer field, whatever he chooses -- divorce lawyer is CERTAINLY not an option!
