    70k + company car

    Downside is that the location is less than desirable..

    I complain, but there are new graduates worse off. Thankful for what I have.

    $9.00/hour and I just graduated from college in December. I plan to go back to school and get my master's and then I should be making huge bank the rest of my life (probably 50k the rest of my life).

    I just graduated this year at age 23 and will snag an entry level job at an accounting firm. With income from other sources (owned business and investments), I expect my earnings to be $100K on the low end and $150K on the high end. Will be pulling in $200K+ in a few years in a cautiously optimistic scenario.

    As a typical Asian boy, I was pushed to become a doctor or lawyer, but obviously there are other roads to riches and I make sure to remind my parents that I make more at age 23 than they do at age 60 to make up for all the beatings!

    What businesses and investments could you have made / engaged in, proactively, in your late teens / early twenties? I'm confused...

    Like in Boiler Room, a casino in his basement, or selling counterfeit LV bags or pimping for some hot chicks in some resort ... ...

    I work with kids who have Autism. I'm going into the mental health field - a line of work that typically is underpaid and overworked, but nonetheless it is what I want to do.

    This thread seems to be filled with rampant dishonesty. Either SF is filled with bankers or we have some salary inflation going on here.
