No doubt if Premier Brown had his way, you'd be working til 72.

Premier Brown can jog on if he thinks of implementing that...but quite a few 72 yrs have no choice but to work!-He should sort out pensions before he tries to raise the retirement age.

Because we're not average. TSR is vastly weighted towards the upper-middle class, as pointed out by many. I believe the last survey indicated something like 25% of us went to independent schools, compared to an 8% national figure - and I'll bet you my bottom pound note that a good fraction of the remainder went to 'best in the county' state schools.

With the majority of the rest being exceptional students at their average to way below average students-probz making them all the more ambitious.

No. That's what someone told me. Given he was the Chancellor, I took their word for it. Anyway, you have nothing to worry about, someone quoted you, and it says you're aiming for 200k.

£45k (and that probably won't be wildly above the average in 30 years time) That is what I expect to earn, obviously I would like it if I could earn more though.

Arguably, raising the retirement age is one way to sort out pensions. Frankly though, I'd be more inclined to take a good hard look at public service retirement plans. Millions of people retiring on 90% salary index linked while the rest of us poor ****ers have to plough on until we drop. Something ain't right.

I'm not upper middle class - i'm working class, but working on it My mum tax fraud's for extra benefits... i'm not proud or anything, but she doesn't want a job (i told her it was wrong...)

Anyway - I wanna do a masters then maybe a Phd if i'm good enough in english lit, then about 25K would be good; but if i was doing a job i was truly proud of/happy in doing, i'd easily work for minimum wage.

More than my mum...less than my Dad. So anything between £22k and <embarrassingly large sum> then...

But honestly I agree with...erm...*checks back a few pages*...AverageGuyOnTheStreet; I'd rather earn **** all in a job I really enjoy than half a mil in a job I hate.

All these people with the romantic ideas of thinking they'll be happy earning minimum wage doing "something they love" are really bull****ting themselves.

I don't think that's true at all - not at all.
I can't exactly describe why, but I KNOW what makes me happy - and I'd go to lengths if I had an ambition I knew was achievable.

Heck, if it was achievable, I'd live in a bedsit to get somewhere!

Just my opinion, but I think it's also quite a selfish stance to take if you're planning on having kids and starting a family in the future - wouldn't you want to give your family a decent and comfortable life instead of just scraping by because you chose to settle for a low wage for doing 'something that you love'. I'm not going through uni and having high ambitions of a well paid job just so I can buy myself designer handbags for the rest of my life - it's so that when I do settle down and start my own family, they'll be looked after and I'll be able to provide my kids a better childhood than I had when I was younger.

Agreed. You can't exactly do much with your life earning minimum wage!

I wouldn't have kids if I didn't have enough money to look after them - besides the fact that I'd probably have a husband = double wage.

Anyway, I wouldn't want to spoil my kids silly, I think having the time and love for them is far more important.

Maybe, maybe not.

I dont plan on doing something 'i love' - BUT -

I also dont plan on doing something i hate - which MORE THAN LIKELY will involve a job with a lot of stress for a lot of money.
