Is earning 25k a year considered poor? Watch
Also I have sources because I live for stats
Edit: even if you can't find a job that pays that much you can get creative and start a business and pay yourself what you want
lol no. If you're not in London, that's basically the average salary for an office job. Most students are really delusional about money. They think corporations are paying people £40k a year for great jobs, when it's honestly more like £25k a year. There is so much competition for jobs, they don't need to pay people £40k. So £25k a year is basically a very middle-class salary, that most people earn. It would be a very comfortable life. You certainly wouldn't be poor! I seriously know people with PhDs in Physics, who are on £30k a year. That's what the real job market is like. You don't just walk into 40-50k roles. Very few people have them
as far as I'm concerned, i get paid what the market rate is for a job at a specific company. whether or not a salary is considered poor or not is meaningless to me. so far, I've never earned less than ~£30k pro-rata and that's as an intern - just happens that the going rate for stuff i'm interested in is fairly high.
