Well its totally dependent on what you go to college for.... but like I said, I am happy with 0 debt right now... That being said I will go back to school this year for my electrical ticket, so its a non issue.http://www.labour.gov.bc.ca/esb/facshts/min-wage.htmOriginally posted by Inactive UserOriginally posted by Inactive UserThe difference between you and him is that he never claimed his girl is hot or whatever. You go and claim that you'll shut everyone up by posting a pic of your girl and then proceed to post a pic of a girl you thought was hot.
I don't understand why you try to make it sound like you're doing better than people on HB. Truth is, you're not. Most of the users are still in HS so they can't really get a job better than retail. You're $15/hr is not impressive. Isn't minimum wage where you live like $10.25? I don't know how old you are but I think you said you were 22? If that's the case, a lot of people graduate college at 22 and they making more than 15/hr. Even if your pay was the same, they would advance faster in their careers than you would.
tl;dr: You try to make it sound like you're doing better than everyone else when you're probably behind the curve.
I've stated multiple times that I realize 15 an hour (plus commission) isn't a a lot of money, all I said was that it simply allows me to live comfortably and buy most things I want (at this stage in my life). It was other users that put words in my mouth by saying otherwise.
To add to that, I know a few people off the top of my head who graduated with BAs and BSc degrees who now are either unemployed or working somewhere for 10-13 an hour. The only difference is they have heaps of debt to pay off.
Lastly minimum wage is 8 dollars an hour in BC
$10.25 as of May 2012
Those ppl with degrees and working 10-13 probably didn't do any internships during their school years.
You have to stop pointing out the bottom end of society to justify yourself. The average college grad will make more than you out of college and will advance quicker and further than you.
