Default What are you getting paid?

So, what do you get paid for your labor?

Include what you do and how much you get paid, plus your minimum wage in your state / country and where you work, please.

I work at Dominos.. and the minimum wage is $6/hour here in great ol' New York.. and I make $7.25 when working regular shifts, and $13.75 when I run shift.

I don't mean to be nosy.. just making conversation and I'm curious.

Default Re: What are you getting paid?

let us just say that what I get in retirement for working for over 45 years is still better than most get having to work 7 days a week.
and I don't have a whole lot of fancy things, per se,
but what I do have is paid for with no morgage , no car pament, and all that jaz.

I remember when Minimum wage was like 4 something. Making ends meet on that was a little bit difficult. Since then I have only had one other job, been there 5 years as a regular employee, then the opportunity arose to take over a store. While doing this I'm even expanding my financial potential, by tuning up my computer skills for something on the side. For what I make..Lets just say I'm finally driving the 05 Infinity G35 I always wanted, and finally living on my own, <(This was the biggest accomplishment), and happy as hell.

Those younger, Don't settle for MC D's as a career, Almost all of you sound like you have a good head on your shoulders, Pursue what satisfies your heart, and never give up, or listen to others.
