Chicago 3rd grade inner city black teacher
$132,000/yr
Paid vacation 5months
Work only 23hrs/wk
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21300769


Thanks for the larf (I think...)
Read this and almost got mad then realized it was a joke
(and the jokes on us!)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1422341


Not a joke
Yes u have to have a masters in child development but I can see and know why people say teachers are overpaid
It is truly regurgitated reading from a lesson plan book plus babysitting
Work hours are 9am-3pm & in that 1hr is naptime and 30min is lunch so it's like taking advantage of the taxpayers to the extreme
 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.
 Quoting: Thor's Hamster


Trust me, I know what you are saying and you don't get into that sort of heavy workload unless you are in 5thgrade and up
I really feel for those teachers but I am not one of them. I admit, I have it easy. And by the way, most if not all Chicago schools begin at 8:45 and end at 3pm.

Re: Who here earns over $60,000 a year and what is your job?
For the past 2 years I have travelled the earth with my fiancé visiting a total of 36 countries (in 5 continents)seeing everything I dreamt of seeing and then I decided to try farming ecologically in rural Eastern Poland this spring. Worked out quite well. I have not "held a job" for these 2 years - but I still own 24% of the shares in 4 separate hotels located in a Scandinavian country. Which I built up from scratch and previously managed (not through inherited money). The profit there is around $1.000.000 annually (should be the same next year too), so you can do the math...
Life is good - but I had serious burnout syndrome and a plethora of other stress related health syndromes at the end of my 8 year sejour as GM over those businesses... I see life totally differently now. And my greed is replaced by empathy and my brackets now see what the sheeple deny

I honestly don't know what I make...which reminds me I should call my accountant...at this point, even with the fucked up economy, I'm sure my investments are working harder than I am...

I'm a financial counselor, among other things, and I love what I do...I'm also a full time asshole ;)

Up until I quit earlier this year, I was making $65k as an IT generalist at a mid-size company. I got pretty specialized with all their systems, but after 4 1/2 years I got tired of the guys I was working with and didn't like being inside staring at computer screens all day.

4 months later, I miss the pay check. Looking for a new job now..

Re: Who here earns over $60,000 a year and what is your job?
I'm a real estate entrepreneur.

10 hours a week buying and selling houses nets $120k a year. Not much of a challenge anymore. Do not use my own capital or credit.

30 hours a week helping other real estate entrepreneurs close deals nets me $144k a year as consultant, author, speaker. I really enjoy helping my clients solve issues and be successful.

20 hours a week listening to YouTube subscription feeds and hanging out on GLP, exploring external links. I'm an addicted conspiracy and doomtard since Jan 2011. Hoping for karmic payback. Classic gulper.

Making more money than I am now not important today. Already own my own business, schedule my days as I see fit, walk to work, got the best home, etc. However looking soon to free up my committed weekly time and payoff real estate debt faster. Got a new super fast laptop, iPhone 5, recreational toys, etc.

Re: Who here earns over $60,000 a year and what is your job?
pretty close to that doing retail as a multistore manager, but.... managing 2-3 stores is a pain unless you have great teams.

On another note, making that much, i'm definitely a target, they hire 20 year olds and pay them almost half what i make.

A few of us managers who have been around during the hey days of payless, were given hefty raises every year for quite a few years, then the economy turned and now they are shutting down stores...

Refinery operations. Depending on overtime, I've made between $115,000 and $139,000 the last 4 years. I like it, when things are good it's gravy but when there are problems I probably work harder than most of you. So basically two extremes. Plus, we don't make ice cream here, so there's always a danger of boom. It's a risk but that's part of why we make what we make.

diesel mechanic, 20+ years and it's good. I took a break for awhile and worked in networking, CNE, A+ etc.. hated it.

Working hard for 50 hours/wk will get you over 100k. Working steady for 40 will get you over $70k.

the best thing is that when you leave, it's over. I don't spend hours training, studying and researching. I don't have to take it home with me, but if I do it at home it's 50/hr. cash.

I earn about $125K a year as a manager for a communications center for a major metropolitan fire department in California....I also run a side business that I will NOT identify because I think some people from that area of my life are actually here on GLP....and that nets me about 30K a year.

Wife is stay at home mom.

I don't LOVE the 911 life, but I do love my side business.

County employed custodian. I make $63k. Basic responsibilities include taking out trash, cleaning bathrooms, and mopping the floors in the administration building; but I often don't do a good job and sometimes skip the bathrooms altogether.

2% annual raise (+) vacation time. No college degree. GED. Most of my co-workers are not citizens. Not bad.

I work in a call center and make 33k a year before taxes. I have an associates degree and it's strictly 7:30-4:00pm, Monday-Friday, no work will come back home with you kind of job.

High stress October-December then it's dead. I live in a college town rent a nice apartment have no loans or any debts not even a car payment granted my ride has 170k on it and I hope it will get another 30k. As someone who hadn't had health insurance for the last 4 years this job offers great benefits but it's not my ideal job.

Income varies depending on how much I work. I make custom high end (expensive) items for the pet industry. Am semi-retired but keep very busy and earn quite a bit doing something I really enjoy.

Small market in bad economy but I have repeat business which helps.

My trainng/education is in nursing, however. Haven't used that in years.

A Man Has Got to Know His Limitations

I am just a sinner trying to make it to heaven!

Romans 8:35-39
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
