I guess according to styleforum standards it's not but in the real world it puts you in the top 1.5-2%.
I highly doubt most SF makes nearly as much, mainly because most are very young..
Anyway yea 225k is more than enough to live comfortable but not luxurious life.
A couple years ago I flew into Houston for an interview with a multinational oil company. The moment I got out of the airport and into the taxi I wasn't feeling it and as I made the forty mile trip to the outer ring of "downtown" I was pretty much ready to throw in the towel. The interview went well and they eventually offered me a job making a good deal more than what I was making at the time, but I declined. Just couldn't see myself living there for any extended period of time.
I've always loved Texans and I think the state is home to some of the nicest people on the planet, but Houston, San Antonio, Dallas et.al are just damn depressing cities for me. Too much sprawl, too many cars.
Yeah I think it's natural and reasonable to feel that way. But the reality is that if someone is on the high end of the income spectrum and can afford to live in the middle of the city, they just don't see the cars or the sprawl that you saw when coming in from Intercontinental. And in Fort Worth where I live, you get the benefits of Dallas but with a 50% discount on housing in the nicer neighborhoods and much much less traffic in general. So while I live in the middle of the largest land-locked metropolitan area in the U.S., which stretches East of me for a good 45 miles, I just don't experience that. My experience is that there are 4 buildings within 9 blocks of my house that were designed by Pritzker winners, my commute is 3 minutes, the restaurants are great, and we put a total of 18k miles per year on our two vehicles, including shuttling 3 kids around. It ain't bad.
Last night I ate dinner at a nice restaurant here in Fort Worth, and when I walked out there was a Murcielago, an R8, an Aston Martin and a Bentley in the VIP valet slots. I guarantee you that none of the owners of those cars had any of the jobs listed in these links, which is why articles like this are always funny to me.
These days there are plenty of farmers and ranchers who are making more in a month than those doctors are in a year, just by sitting on their porch and listening to the oil/gas whistle up out of the ground.
You're confusing Working with income.
I could have money from Trust funds, 2 lottery wins and an oil field, but I still don't have a job. Thats a list of jobs, not "ways to be rich" list.
