Apart from the fact I'm curious, making a career change. My heart is in midwifery but the pay is bad. I'm money motivated so know I could do something I'm less passionate about if it meant more money.

Currently doing an access course.

Currently, tutor. $18 CAD/hr, 20 hours a week until I graduate from engineering.

Then, as I already have a position lined up after graduation, $67k CAD annually plus pension.

You should look into maternity nursing/nannying. Super easy segway from midwifery & you can pull in a great salary with your experience

£8.87/hour, part time (days) in a supermarket.
Previous full time job, around 50-55 hours including overtime, worked there nearly 20 years on minimum wage, with a 30p/hour increase when min wage caught up with what I'd been on.

There's nothing like a mean employer to convince you you're not worth more.

Fiscal Officer in a court, just over £20k. It's an entry level civil service position but I've only been there 6 months and hopefully I can work my way up soon enough. Good benefits too on top of pay
