What's a good salary?Watch
However, realistically what's a good/average/bad salary?
The reason I ask is that a friend of mine said his mum was on a salary of roughly £19,000 and said that's an excellent salary. Yet, I know someone who's on a salary of roughly £35,000 and they say it's average.
Personally, I'd say;
£5k-£15k is not enough, 16k-30k is average, 30k-60k is good 60k-90k is excellent and 90K plus is the bees knees!
But, I just want to see what other peoples opinions are of what a good/bad etc salary is
Personally, a good salary to me would be £35k a year.
Negs! It was on the bbc website!
"According to ASHE, "mean" gross annual earnings across all employee jobs in 2008 came to £26,020. You may think that's rather a high "average" salary. And if you look just at the figures for full-time employees, that figure rises to £31,323"
It depends on personal circumstance somewhat, there will be people who say 'but I live on £10k a year and I'm fine so £12k is a good salary'. By definition anyone on under £25k is on less than the average salary so that can't be classed as 'good', it has to be higher.
In London, alone, a good salary starts at 60k.
EDIT : why all the negging? ok I shouldn't have said that my house "sucked", but hey it's old, hot water is a pain in the a***, and walls are so thin, we can hear the neighbours (both sides) talking.
