i realize this is the OT where the median salary is over $250,000, but if you enjoyed what you did and only made $35,000 with no room for advancement, could you live a good life for you and your family (in the south)?
ok, let me edit this slightly. if $35,000 isn't enough for you to survive on, then how much would be sufficient?? $60,000? remember, this doesn't include spouse's salary.
also, even though $35,000 might sound low, it also has perks i forgot to add. free health/dental insurance, retirement options, 401k, etc. you would also have set hours that never change, no overtime, you get EVERY weekend off, every government/national holiday off, a long weekend every Thanksgiving, a week off for Christmas/New Years, and two months off every single summer. yeah, i wonder what career i'm talking about
