How much do your friends make?

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 don't ever ask friends or family how much money they make. That would be rude.

  • Most people we know make inbetween 70k-120k a year. Most are managers and financial advisers and most of my friends are stay at home moms.

  • By the way, I never asked but some friends have volunteered the information-I've never told them our salary, though.

  • All of my friends are professionals of one kind or another, so they make a lot higher than 20. an hour.

  • Pardon my french - "How the hell should I know?"
    Its none of my business how much money my friends make.

    Answer by MrsDAP at 3:32 PM on Dec. 28, 2010

  • 1. I dont ask people how much they make
    2. I have been out of h.s. for well over 20 yrs.
    3. If I HAD to guess about the friends I do keep in touch with (maybe 5 out of the 800+ I graduated with) my guess would be about $600,000.
