Depends on the job itself, so the requirements, qualification, responsibility, numbers of working hours, etc. No one should be underpaid, living with the parents or not.

Normal for who? It is considerably above the average salary.

In a year? even if it is in this period of time, it is a good one by considering a 40 working hours week and a net wage.

I’ve heard people say if you’re earning ur age x 1000 ur doing well but obviously where you work and how much you work are huge factors

It depends on the working conditions. For normal conditions, you are right, this is above average salary.

I'd say it has little to do with working conditions. Some of the toughest jobs are poorly paid; caring, cleaning, retail.

Whereas office jobs are typically far better conditions and better paid.

So many jobs are underpaid though e.g. starting salary for a newly qualified teacher outside of London is only £25k

Goal is to be the person getting the wad of cash! He did marry my cousin though, so maybe gold-digging runs in the family!

Completely depends on area e.g. how much the average house price is. But generally 30k and above is decent in my view (not in an area like London though!).

True, it's the same for nursing too. And nursing is such a tough/stressful role.

My first post graduate job after doing a PGCE was £26k when I was about 25 years old, I now can earn about £36k at 34. I always thing it is not what you earn, it is what is in your bank after all your outgoings which matters
