I was reading a post on people’s professions and whether or not you use your degree in the workplace…and that got me wondering…how much money do you all make? I just thought it would be interesting to compare our regions, professions, and how much money each industry earns.
Please post your location, profession, and annual salary.

I live near Puyallup, Wa but work in Seattle, Wa

11$ per hour or $21,000 per year
I just have a 2 year AA degree, hasn’t helped me at all. Trying really hard to find something that pays more! $11 is the minimum wage in Seattle right now.

I work 3 jobs.
Horry County, South Carolina
Bring home a whopping $70,00 between all 3.
And yes, I have a full time job. Being a Firefighter/Paramedic pays peanuts. Had to start work as a RN to compensate.

I live just outside Wasilla, AK and I make about $45k/yr. I have a bachelors in business management with an emphasis in accounting. What I do is a little harder to answer… I do administrative work, but it’s kind of a catch all term for my position… I work for a small surveying/engineering company and I do whatever is needed which includes: Safety, Insurance, Accounting, Office Mgmt, Proposals, freight/travel logistics… really a little of everything!

I am personally a stay at home mom… Never had a job or used my college education….
My husband on the other hand never went to college and started in the oilfield at 18 making 100k.
Now 10 years later he’s a consultant in the oilfield and makes over 200k.
He makes a heck of a lot more than most college graduates. It all depends on what you do. Oh yes and were in Texas.

I’m a special education teacher and only make 35,000. No master’s degree, though, and still considered a beginning teacher. But it still looks like I’m getting the short end of the stick, haha!

goldengardenia: well, there’s only one way to move on that salary schedule…so keep trudging along, girl!
That said, I have been teaching for 9 years and have my Masters plus 60, so that explains my wage. I only made 45k my first year teaching- you also have to consider cost of living expenses. San Diego= Expensive

goldengardenia: The district I work for is one of the highest paying in the state, so I lucked out. I’m on my 5th year teaching and have a coaching supplement that is added in to my salary as well, so that helps. The masters added about 3k a year.

Almost-pharmacist in Philly area, my job offer is for $120Kish. I did things the “hard” (but in my experience, what is becoming the more typical) way by finishing my BS, then going straight to pharmacy school-some people do it all in 6 years instead of 8. Coming out with about $140K loans- and that’s just pharmacy school (mercifully no undergrad loans). We will live off hub’s income, and my loans should be totally paid within 2 years of my graduation. Maybe slightly sooner if I pick up a lot of overtime! For comparison, FH got his accounting degree and passed the CPA exam right away, started out a little under $50K in big 4 acct (with undergrad loans about equal to his salary) and had them paid off within 2.5 years by eating nothing but ramen and cheerios . His income will pass mine in about 5 years, but as soon as my loans are paid off, he’s going to take a contract abroad and we’ll be back to one income anyway! We don’t follow Dave Ramsey, but our friends who do say we are total mini-Daves. I’ll take that as a compliment!
