    Lol.. only on the misc.

    $100k/year after taxes is about $6200/month, or $5300/month if you contribute 10% to a retirement plan.

    If you're single and spend $2k/month on a fancy apartment, $600/month on food, $100/month on gym/netflix/spotify, and $800/month on transit, that leaves you roughly $1800/month in savings. And that's if you spend like a complete *******.

    Personally? My expenses in a major city are as follows:

    Rent/utilities - $1800
    Food - $400
    Gym/Netflix/Spotify/Phone - $125
    Total - $2325

    I pocket about $3400/month or $40,800/year. The expenses I haven't listed are clothes ($2k), entertainment ($3k), and travel ($5k). So I'm saving $31k/year in cash and another $15k/year in retirement. 10 years of that would net me something like $500k cash, significant equity in my condo, and much more in retirement, assuming I stay single.

    How the fuk are you saying $100k isn't a lot? I'll tell you how - because you probably spend money like a typical basic bitch.

    BRB Starbucks several times a day
    BRB drinks at the bar every weekend
    BRB designer clothes
    BRB lease a luxury vehicle
    BRB latest iphone each year
    BRB eat out at restaurants every week

    Durrrr $100k is the new $50k durrrr

    I'm a union tradie in the Bay area. You have to miss quite a bit of work to get under 100k a year. Completely serious and that is just the pay not including all the fringe benefits including our vacation check bonus and whatnot

    I’ve made $100k or above last 3 financial years (im28) and honestly doesn’t feel like a whole lot, I live comfortable but I’m definately not some baller, mind you chit in Australia is expensive AF cost of living is pretty high in the suburbs so 100k per year Aud wouldn’t get you nearly as far as 100k in other countries would

My cousin works in a warehouse in Seattle and he makes well over $100k. It's all relative.
    ^^^ + cost of living, tax rates and currency. $200k in Singapore is very very different to $200k in Australia even now that the currencies are virtually equivalent. Different again if you need to pay for international schooling in Singapore

    Wait til you see what happens when you hit $180k...

    It’s life changing but not in the way you’d hope.

    Lots get there working extended hours, I’ve seen firefighters in my city make over 100k just in OT alone sickening. I’m near $150k total comp just putting in standard 40 hour weeks, this isn’t anything glamorous when Uncle Sam takes near 35% and CA col takes everything else.
    Besides most coworkers, half my family is poverty with no education on unemployment right now, the other has advanced degrees from top prestigious schools raking in coin ($350k).

    I’m in nyc. Unfortunately 100k per year really isn’t that much. The median income in some of the nicer neighborhoods like west village is 800k/year, no exaggeration

    Who do you know that makes $1 BILLION personal income every year? That's a very short list. Well, not for misc, but for normies.

    Pretty much everyone I went to university does because it is a rich fuk school with great job placement. I'm closing in on six figures and will arrive on my next position, but probably among the lowest of my fellow graduates.

    UK bro so 6 figures GBP is a really high salary and very few people make that esp outside of the city. I make about £80k in a highly specialised engineering field and even that most people will never come close to. Median is like £27k or some ****.

    I know higher ups in my company who make 100k+, my parents (doctors with 40 yr exp) and some of their friends, a couple of my friends in IB, otherwise no one lol.

    Can confirm. 6 week turnaround at $55 an hour straight time, $82.50 OT, and $115 a day per diem is almost 40k working 84 hour weeks. Here I am working salary while these guys come in and clean house.

    Live near Bay Area so I don’t know anyone. Unless you count the bar tender at the local dive bar who’s a buddy.

    I exceeded 200k when I was 25. Most people have 6 figure bonus grants even. Wouldn’t imagine pretending to cope on a 5 figure W2.

    I don't know any under 35. Which is crazy b/c everyone under 35 on the misc is making over 100k. Guess that's just a weird coincidence I guess.

    Is that a Contractor rate or as an employee? $55/hr is damn good, that would be General Foreman level around these parts

    This is my setup right now with six years of experience, on the mangement side



    The LOA alone is almost $29k a year tax free without working any days on top of a 10/4 rotation

    No I'm making this thread to figure out how everyone on the misc makes six figures, but its rare to actually meet someone who makes that IRL around my age. I'd go as far as to say that even in my previous corporate job a lot of oldcels were making the same amount as me and we were nowhere near 100k.

    That said I do think that hanging around people who make that amount would be a good influence.

    Under 35 I know a few, but only one person outside of medicine. His dad owns a large company and he works for it. The only other people I know that make more than that barely do and live in SF or Silicon Valley and their salary is actually almost at the poverty line there even though they break 100k easily.

    No one that I know in any other field has broken 100k by 35 in the southeast No joke.


    Further, I grew up in an area where almost all of these people’s parents made at least $150k a year.

    Contractor. The API 510 inspectors that come in for turnarounds may get paid anywhere from $50-$60 an hour plus their per diem. Advanced NDE techs doing Phased Array UT get paid the same or more.

    $100k/year after taxes is about $6200/month, or $5300/month if you contribute 10% to a retirement plan.

    If you're single and spend $2k/month on a fancy apartment, $600/month on food, $100/month on gym/netflix/spotify, and $800/month on transit, that leaves you roughly $1800/month in savings. And that's if you spend like a complete *******.

    Personally? My expenses in a major city are as follows:

    Rent/utilities - $1800
    Food - $400
    Gym/Netflix/Spotify/Phone - $125
    Total - $2325

    I pocket about $3400/month or $40,800/year. The expenses I haven't listed are clothes ($2k), entertainment ($3k), and travel ($5k). So I'm saving $31k/year in cash and another $15k/year in retirement. 10 years of that would net me something like $500k cash, significant equity in my condo, and much more in retirement, assuming I stay single.

    How the fuk are you saying $100k isn't a lot? I'll tell you how - because you probably spend money like a typical basic bitch.

    BRB Starbucks several times a day
    BRB drinks at the bar every weekend
    BRB designer clothes
    BRB lease a luxury vehicle
    BRB latest iphone each year
    BRB eat out at restaurants every week

    Durrrr $100k is the new $50k durrrr
    Yeah, families of four are surviving on 50k combined yet less than $100k as a single man is nothing on the misc. No one I know that makes more than 50k is stressed about money.

    my dad raised a family of four on around $70-80k a year on average and I had a pretty happy childhood.

    Yeah NDE money is fukn good around here too. I'm not generally in refineries but am still on process piping in oil production plants, actually working on the Keystone XL pipeline right now


    My company pays upwards of $130/hr for top level Project Controls and PM contractors

My cousin works in a warehouse in Seattle and he makes well over $100k. It's all relative.
    People are stupid though and think on very basic levels.

    Salary is one component to wealth

    Wealth is built when you take the money you have over at the end of each week / month and save and invest it

    If your expenses are high, then you won't have much money left over even on $100k

    So the real factor is, how much do you save, whilst living a relatively comfortable lifestyle?
