Hourly Wage Question

36 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

When I was 17 years old making $10 an hour seemed like a good wage.

When I was 21, $19 seemed good.

Now I'm 25ish and making just under $31 and I don't know what to think. Is that a decent wage for an unmarried bachelor?

Will I feel differently when I'm 35?

I live in Vancouver and live a humble lifestyle. I was never a fan of money.

most people at 25 are still working minimum wage, so i'd say that's pretty good

Depends on what you do for a living.

If you're a dishwasher at KFC yeah $31/hr is pretty sweet.

If you're performing brain surgery you might want to ask for a raise.

For an unmarried bachleor I'd say that's pretty good. Better than a lot of people out there, that's for sure. I can't fathom how anyone with a mortgage and bills can really get ahead with making less than $30 an hour.

Conversely, a married bachelor would need a lot more.

I don't know a single person in the 25ish range who makes less then $15 an hour.

Some part of your question is asking whether or not you make good money for a 25 year old, I'm sure. But if you're trying to find out if you are paid less/the same/more than other people in similar jobs - you would need to give us more details. What industry are you in / what job are you doing?

$60,000 per year is generally decent money; but as others have pointed out, it depends on your expenses (mortgage, student loans, etc).

The easy math is to double your hourly wage. $31/hr = ~$62,000/yr.
