    all depends on where you live i guess. things are so expensive around here, 40k is just enough to live, It will get you an apartment, a used car, and some spending cash.

    Heck 40K wont let you live at the beach here ........ It takes 2 incomes if you have a family to support them! Thats why its feast or famine and you try to feast like heck in the summer. 80 hrs isnt uncommon a week here then. Not typical... just not uncommon.

    Isn't NC a right to work state?

    That is your problem!

    Those wages are way low for the west coast.
    I STARTED WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!

    Anywhere from 30,000 to 60,000 here. Depends on what you know and who you work for.

    its called an "at will" work place.

    you can quit for no reason

    they can fire you for no reason

    either way, i am sure that the cost of living here is camparable to most big cities.

    it's higher here at the beach than it is at the states capitol area, but yet at the coast you still yeild lower income.

    the mentality is that you come here to be at the beach, so they don;t pay the deserved wage because they think you want to be at the beach.

    myself, i could careless!!! i just want to be able to retire before my body physically retires me!!

    I'm wondering if thats the 40 hour week and the ot is not considered. I think the number would be a little higher----maybe?

    Talking

    Working in central Florida ,residential techs are within the MSN posted pay range.Making 70,000-80,000 per year would not be out of range for a good commercial/industrial tech. Take into consideration that this pay would include some overtime per year, Not 20-30 hours per week. And of course we are not in the northeast pay scales.

    OT and spiffs should not be included in a base annual salary. those variables aren't continous.

    hourly wage at 40hrs is what the poll is based on, i am sure.

    too many variables outside that.

    and what have we become that we have to depend on OT and sales spiffs

    yes it is. But at the beach..... all the emplyers know it being a tourist area... tons of ppl want to relocate. So they can go season to season weeding out those they hire.

    1. Yep!

    2. Yep to many people go get a job... hear surfs up... and never return. So the next one they hire is only going to get the same wage rate (no matter if they are the best employee ever) because of all the slackers before them!

    3. Thats soon isnt it? I hit 47 Sunday comming up and I already feel 84 yrs old (physically)
