Re: Who here earns over $60,000 a year and what is your job?
I run my own business. I do okay. My wife is an RN. Our combined income is descent. I like what I do. I also run a small ranch. However, these days it's more a right off than a for-profit endeavor.

I am working on a advanced degree in engineering and polishing up my CNC skills. I also maintain my paramedic licence, however, I am considered 'inactive' since I only first respond as a volunteer for our local VFD.

I am a serial skill acquirer and a junkie for new trade skills. It's just me.

All that said, I rip my hair out if I had to go into a cubicle . No amount of cash could get me in that life, I turn tricks on the interstate first!

$68,000 per year and I work as a healthcare compliance analyst (making sure that your private medical records are protected when you go to the hospital or your insurance company is billed). Only 4 years out of school though, so the ceiling is higher for this profession ... probably around $80,000 - $110,000 depending upon the size of the company and the local market.

Ill be hitting a 100k this yr..

Im a plumber, work on commission. I dont think anyone here hates there job as much as i do. I work very long hrs, holidays and on call 2-3 nights a week.. Its also a very physical job! Hate it, thinking about going back to school and getting a nice office job for a change..

I love that check at the end of the week though! The more you make and the bigger the company you work brings an even bigger stress..

I make about 45K and my wife brings in about 20K tax free. We both love our jobs. I am a service tech and backup driver for a local propane company and she takes care of an old lady and cleans 2 houses each week.

I have a buddy that drives a freight truck for UPS, he made 100K last year.

You think this is a joke? Either one would be advantageous along with the understanding of the systems that run these, you could be sitting on a gold mine.

how many kids asshole and give us some specifics of where you live - urban? rural?

I agree $100K for two people with no kids is not at all bad depending on where you live and what you have to do for it.

But from your post I am guessing you don't have "issues" and maybe that what you meant - if you can't live on that you've got issues (legalese for "kids")

I am self employed in the low voltage installation field, I also do a specialized type of programming. I'm sure nobody will believe me, but I will make well over $300,000 this year. I have not made less then $200,000 per year in the last ten, except for one year. It took/takes a lot of long hours and travel, but the money is great! I don't think I could ever go back and work for anybody else.
