Sometimes people act as though it is but sometimes people act as though it isn't.

It would be a lot for say, a bottle of water, or if that was your hourly rate, but it wouldn’t be that much for a weekly rent or for someone’s savings.

What do you think is a normal amount for each of those things then?

I don't work yet but everyone who I know does gets like £5-£7/h. We're only sixth formers though tbh. £10/h for us would be absolute heaven lmao.

Bottle of water maybe 80p, hourly rate depends on job and individual experience, for me normal is around £9ph, rent around £75 per week and depends on time spent and situation of person saving but I’d say 10-15% of whatever money they’ve earned/gained in a year is good going.

Depends on what the £50 is for.

I spent about £2,000 on flights and hotels the other day, £50 isn't a lot in comparison.

I spent about £1,50 on a bottle of water this morning. £50 is quite a bit for that small 1,5 litre of Evian.

If you get £50 an hour, I'd say you're doing quite well.

It all depends how much you earn and what you do with your money, really.

its relative, for a loaf of bread its extortionate, for a holiday its an unreal price...
also £50 to a student has a much larger impact than it would to a partner at a law firm.

How on earth is £50 an hour not amazing when the average pay is less than £12 an hour? If you're working 40 hours a week that's £2000 a week. It takes a month for the average person to earn that much. You'd be on 6 figures.

Should partners in law firms give money to students then?

You forget this is TSR, where everyone is convinced they'll be getting £45k graduate jobs with their 2:2 or 2:1 straight out of uni..

It depends really. If I think about it in terms of my rent and bills then no it isn't lots but if it was money for me to spend on myself then yes that is a lot!
