    Just curious. I know it's a personal question, so don't answer if you don't want to.

    If you don't mind, though...I'd be curious as to which salary bracket you choose, what field you work in, and whether you like what you do. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I work in the hotel biz... Make about $11,000 a year... and I love my job /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif... It'd be nice if I could make enough to live well off of it though, but seems like that only happens to people in management positions...

    I'm unemployeed but I said 20-40K. I use to make 36K then I dropped down to 28K. I have never really liked any job I had except for working at the autoparts store /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif I guess I didn't work there long enough to start to dislike it. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Most all of my jobs are less than 9months, 10months being the longest job /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif and most only being 3-4months /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    People would weep for my soul if they knew what I made. But it's not about the money.

    I eventually get to disliking any job I've ever had, only because I have things I'd rather do for myself and others, but you've gotta have money to do it!

    Not that I dislike working, or the people I'm with, I would just rather use my life to enjoy things that interest me, as opposed to making money just to survive.

    I make between $58K and $65K as a fabricator building aerospace tooling. Been there almost 4 years now and I really like my job. My only dislikes are when we get long stretches of overtime...pay is good, but it takes it's toll on the body and family life.

    After 15 years in the Air Force (enlisted) I'm making about $43K. After I get promoted in Aug/Sept I should be right at 50K

    Making just under 40 in construction before my accident.

    I should finish up my Networking Managment degree here in the next year and hope to be making much more.

    I did enjoy the construction except for the long summer hours and the constant political BS within the company.

    I make anywhere from $200-$300k/year, tax free, it really just depends on how good the product turns out in the processing department. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
