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 UserI'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.
