    I make about 13,000 now. But I’m part time and very underpaid. Thankfully my Fiance is such a HUGE help. Just two more years and I’ll be finished with school and should be making 50-60k a year. He’s done with school this week! So excited for him!

    20’s is a really broad decade for pay!  At the start of my 20s my pay was basically nothing (I was a student working part-time in jobs that paid in the $10-15/hour range).  In my my 20s I was being paid around $45k as a junior in my profesion and by my late 20s (which I’ve just exited ::sob::) I was being paid around $80k.  

    In my city and in my profession I think that my trajectory is roughly normal.

    I am 23 (almost 24) and make just over 30k as an Admin Assistant for a retail property mgmt company.

    It is higher than minimum wage, but not really enough to support yourself in SO CAL. PLUS minimum wage is going up to $10 here in January so that closes the gap even more.

    28 years old working in the DC metro area in the publishing/test development industry (I’m an editor). I also freelance when I can for about $40/hour. I’ll be paying back grad school loans until I’m dead. We are DINKs and still living paycheck to paycheck! Whomp Whomp.

    I’m 28 years old and a part-time grad student and full-time assistant manager/buyer for a college bookstore.  My base pay is $30k, but with overtime I’ll be between $40-$45.  It’s not a huge salary but this is entry level and goes up fairly steeply with good promotions.

    MaiFuture:  Oh man! In australia substitute teachers get paid over $300/day! Which is significantly more that I get as a full time teacher.  Our subs get paid a lot because they can’t be guaranteed daily work.  I can’t believe the rate is so low where you are?

    I am an Esthetician and Nail tech and make $27k and am 22. I average about $20 to $30 an hour and don’t work 40 hours all the time. I am just outside of Boulder and feel like I am quite comfortable with our cost of living.

    I’m a photographer in Colorado.  Just graduated with my BFA and my first job is making between 40-60,000 a year based on commission/ bonus.  I’m 25 and that’s a solid living amount here.

    28 with a PhD and I’m in the $70-85K category. Hoping to make 6 figures by the time I’m about 35, but I have no debt (PhD was fully funded) and live in a cheap area, so my salary is great. That said, it took 5 years of grad school making $20K, so I got a late start to savings and 401K and all that jazz. My husband makes about $5K less with only a bachelor’s, but he’s been working 15 years longer.
