none of your beeswax

what difference does it make, its all relative to the area you live, your expenditure, what's the point in knowing peoples earnings, it is not really reflective of how they live.

I'm 40. I earn $82K, which is about £62K.

I do so love these "I'm just nosey" questions whilst the OP offers none of this personal information themselves.

I'm 99 and earn £5 000 000 a year.

I’m 30 and currently earning zero as I was made redundant on maternity leave so now a SAHM. I was earning £31k before that including bonus.
My DH earns between £90-£100k depending how many days he works (contractor). Thank god as it means we’re not worried about me not working.

Meh these threads don’t bother me. I’m naturally nosey but would never ask anyone in real life grin

It depends if I want to be on top, on my back or on fours. Joking. Enough to pay rent, utilities, food and savings.

Under 31k. 😄

33 $62k

Early 40's, £150K-£200K depending on assignments. Quitting as stress and being away from my family is killing me. Also, working in some locations that nobody would even contemplate of taking a holiday as they are dangerous is not a walk in the park.
Who needs money when they are dead? I have savings so I'm thinking of something else to do.

Mid 20s, 25k, looking to retain tho so will be on11k student loan blush

Not asking of someone's earning is a very clever way of the employer paying peanuts as nobody will question their earnings because it's not "the done things".
Fuck that.
