    What's the course/uni? Does that only include people who go on to work in the same area as study?

    I'm not sure.. Probably not, since quite a few graduates jump straight into finance!

    I'm not sure how reliable it is

    I'd want at least 50,000pounds to live in Britain, with everything being so much more expensive.

    I'd say 30k is great under the age of 30ish but after that to live a decent lifestyle about 70k, although I know most people don't achieve this (can always dream)

    Decent - 25k

    I wouldnt condsider 30k as great. Decent.. but not great.

    70k however is fantastic, assuming youre smart enough the reduce the tax liability!

    I earn a lot less than 30k and have loads of money to blow. How are people struggling to live on 25k?...oh yeah most people are total morons with money. Lets work it out for someone who earns 20k and doesn't live in London. Take home is £1368.22

    My outgoings

    £360 for room in a houseshare....Nice area, huge room, all bills included.

    That now leaves £1000 to survive on in a month.

    Phone = £26 a month
    Gym = £28 a month
    Use bike to travel everywhere = pretty much free

    Food is the weird one...I basically have pub lunches everyday so costs me more than it should, so £25-£30 at the supermaket a week and then £20 for lunch at work. Lets give myself £190 a month.

    Clothes - non are branded or really expensive apart from my leather jackets...£100 a month.

    -£344 from the £1000...still leaves me over £600 to blow on non essentials. Which does leave me with £150 to blow a week on going out...at the moment if I go out and don't blow over £100 I am happy(usually close to it). Most of you will think that is crazy, but think I should be able to barely survive on what I am on.

    Granted I have no mortgage, don't plan on saving for one and have no pension....but I think I have just accepted I will die when I am in my 60's and will take loads of drugs, steroids(in the future) and alcohol. Well that is the current plan, no doubt a women and a child will ruin that and give me a purpose.

    Wish you'd have put that at the start of the post so I could then ignore anything further

    Because people are criminals. Dont try and excuse crime by a 'low' minimum wage.

    This is a student forum mostly aimed at those in higher education. For years now we have had government desperately trying to push more and more people into higher education for various reasons. The main way they've done this; the promise of a higher salary at the end.

    It's no wonder so many on here will have unrealistic expectations of their graduate starting salaries.

    So you don't agree that an absence of resources leads to an increase in criminal activity?
