    Dad - Manager of something at a defence company ~ around £100 + bonus

    Mom - Private security consultant ~ varies by year, usually around £55k
    Your dad should politely ask for a rise, 100 quid/year won't cut it (even with a bonus)

    Dad: ~£12.5k a year as a chef at an Indian restaurant. Indian restaurants are so crap in terms of paying people a decent wage.

    Mum: stays at home
    Fuuuark.

    Are you an only child?

    How the hell do you support a family on just £12.5k?

    Owned many many restaurants around 10-20. Then moved on to investing stocks, started couple online businesses. Now he has a couple of english language schools in China. Still actively investing in stocks though.

    It may be that the results are skewed by those unwilling to put their parent's occupations if they believe those occupations will be looked down upon by others.

    From sources like Glass Door or Payscale.

    Turns out big finance companies pay their MDs closer to the 200k mark as well, so it will depend on what type of business you're in.

    No idea how you came up with 40k though

    Why does the average matter? An MD of a company is entirely dependent on the revenue generated by the company...

    Nope. I have an older sister, and last November, a baby brother was born.

    We're poor, but we're not starving. We've been kept propped up by a combination of Working Tax Credits, Child Benefits and Child Tax Credits and rent deductions with Housing Benefits (sound like real spongers don't we lol) so it's been alright tbh. Sure I may not have been able to do everything I wanted but that's okay.

    God bless the socialist aspects of the government lol

    I never said it does matter...

    I was simply correcting someone who seemed to be trying to call someone else out. Don't imply someone is lying if you don't even know the figures yourself.

    Yeah, I saw that. The £40k is BS definitely.
