Who makes more?

Ok I had to rephrase this question: What do you think the average yearly income your friends make? I am not asking if you ever asked them...I am not saying that!!!! Just in general what do you think they make?


I think the highest anyone from my facebook friends would be $16.75 an hour and I'm really stretching it. Most people I know are medical assistents/dental assistent/pharm tech and work as a scheduler or patient rep in a hospital. A majority of my friends just have certificates in there field. A few have a B.A. 1 has a Associates but works two medium pay jobs. And the rest have no college education.

reason I ask because I see in NY they are paying folks up to $18 an hour to shovel snow. I know no one I know makes that much lol I'm wondering if I think people make less than what they like others to think....

  • Where do you live, just curious? I know that from state to state what seems like a lot to someone isn't a lot to someone else.

  • WOW more than $17...well im 27 so my friends would be in that age group. I really doubt any of my friends make over $17 an hour. They would need to have a B.A.. most just have a certificate or worked there way up...no real professionals.

  • at 27 my hub was making $70,000. I dont think that "27 is the age group to make that" I think it is that your group didnt go to college.


    I think you need to rephrase the question.  Of your friends who didnt go on to college... what is the most someone makes.  I think you will get a skewed answer by simply asking about the people we went to high school with.


    Not trying to be rude.... Just trying to help answer your question in a more realistic manor.

  • Well no I am considering the onces that did get a certificate. I think the highest they can make is $16.75 and that is a big strech. Let's say out of 10 friends...3 will have certificates, 2 will have B.A., 1 will have associate, 3 h.s. diplomia, 1 ged/nothing. I swear to you no one I know makes 70G a year wow no one and I am being brutally honest.

  • I only did a semester of college. I do not hold any certificates. I live in indiana and I make $17/hour which is pretty good money here, but to ppl in CA and other states it's not.
