Re: Who here earns over $60,000 a year and what is your job?
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.

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.

The people who originally wrote the code and maintained it are slowly retiring and dieing. They are not training replacements and the systems are not being replaced.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19333122


Eventually they'll be replaced. Anyway, I cannot find an IT/Software engineering job in my country with modern languages. How I would be able to find for a language from the Jurassic period?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24167593


Dude, he explained to you why... The wife of a guy that I work with did this about 10 years ago, for a place that processes prescriptions instantly... And they practically throw money at her, and tons of vacations and huge bonuses... It's nuts
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24284587


I don't disagree, but sometimes it is best and cheapest to invest some money in changing s/w and h/w infrastructures. I just cannot invest any time more to learn a language that I would hardly find a job in my country.

SEO marketing, six figs. Going to live off investments starting the next couple months or so which will do over 60k/year. I'm super cheap so I'll still live like a poor college student and do some work on the side. Maybe learn some programming and develop software.

Re: Who here earns over $60,000 a year and what is your job?
First post so please be gentle. I don't have all the bells and whistles down. I'm a store manager for a major retailer. My base is $87,000. We have the ability to bonus 2x a year (50% of our salary). I have a sales plan of $33 million and employ 130 associates.

I only have a high school diploma. I started at the company 12 years ago as a back up cashier (started at $10.00 an hour) and have worked very hard to advance. The job at the time was to be supplemental income. Now I am able to support my girls. Do I love it? Some days yes, some days no. You are only as good as the #'s you achieve. It is 24/7 as well as holidays and very stressful because there is no job security.

60K a year is about the right amount if you have one or two kids and want to buy a house, put something in retirement savings, and keep your basic systems in good repair.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21300769


Now we KNOW you're puttin' us on. Teachers are educators, baby sitters, nurses, psychologists, coaches, and many other things all wrapped up in one. They're on their feet all day, and they bring their work home with them and have to prepare for the next day's lesson. No real teacher of kids would claim they have it "easy". 9 to 3? Where do you teach? Try 7:30 or 8 to 3 or 4.

I've done alot of jobs in my 50+ years.

I've worked as an electrician in the silicon valley heydays, I've worked for a bank selling home mortgages and I ran my own business for ten years.

What I've found out is exactly what "P-Diddy" said................

"Mo Money, Mo Problems"

I now make about 60K a year and could not be happier.

I did manage to bank a lot of money from my previous employment so we paid cash for our cars and only owe about 100K on our 2500 SQ. FT. home.
