So you work for 12$/hour. A really good pay and 4 days per week to relax. I'd like to be able to get these kinds of pays when I'm older.
£7.80 an hour :p according to google that's 12.04 dollars.

I've been playing Planescape: Torment lately.

The arc words and main question of the game are "What can change the nature of a man?"

I'm thinking of making a topic about this in the Discussion and Debates thread. Kind of a break from politics and more of a delving into philosophy. There are many things in life that can change a person's nature, but people might have different opinions on what has the most impacting change.
Planescape: Torment, is a brilliant game!

Did you know the cover art [and your avatar] is actually Guido Henkel, the game's producer.

I make $12.85 an hour and I wish it was more, hnnggg. Only netting around $26k a year after overtime isn't that great. :\

I used to make $14.25 at one time. Then I was fired and my new job pays $11.50. But I'm making money so I can't complain.

$15.85 an hour for me. Also, I'm 22 and I don't have a degree.

My wage is higher than one of my friends who double-majored in college and he works at car dealership now.

To be fair, majoring in Teledramatic Arts and Japanese for the purpose of making manga and anime doesn't do jack for you unless you actually live in Japan.

Not really.. I heard Japanese manga artists have a really tough time staying afloat. You either have to be a recognized popular artist for that to happen, or freelance.

I have no idea what teledramatic arts is supposed to be..


What ever happened to good ol' plumbers and electricians? They're always in demand and always make a good wage.

If you've ever read the manga Bakuman, then you'd know how much of a gamble it is to get into the manga business and become a famous mangaka (manga artist). To get your manga publish is a hard and tedious task and once it's being published , you're manga is ranked by readers and if falls past a certain rank the publishers remove it form the magazine in ten weeks. So getting recognized in Japan as a manga is difficult.

And I don't have a job unfortunately yet, but I'm in the process of looking for one. I really should be doing that instead of being on PC.

At the debt I've landed myself in, I'd be happy with a job that pays, period. :I

I'd never work at a fast food place though. Ick.

You're looking at an unemployed man right here \o/

though to be honest I would much rather work on my own than in some store or service building.

A seventeen year old can barely get a job around here. It looks like I'm going to have to turn to tutoring little runts. Ugh.

I have no idea what the job market's job in my city, but the economy in the US is awful so I guess not so good. I guess I should just look harder for a job, but even getting one is hard.

Edit: This was my 2000th post!! OMG. I have no life.

Remember, you have to have a college degree and work experience to work!

…I don't get it, honestly.

Neither do I, as if the economy isn't bad enough, now employers are looking for experienced workers. But really, how the hell is a person going to gain work experience when you can't work because everyone is asking for experienced workers??

Seems like the only option to get this experience is by working at a fast-food joint, & even then, I'm not going to hold my breath...

Well, start sellin' them drugs, because you can't get any money doing real jobs, because there are none!

…Just kidding don't sell drugs that's awful. Maybe caffeine, but no drugs whatsoever.

I've heard people tell me how terrible they are, but they've never actually had experience.

Care to share?

Now that you've mentioned it, I think that's why people are dealing drugs in the first place. I can't be too sure about that, though...

Well, where I worked, it was dirty around where the sinks were, and the floors in the kitchen were really dirty, and as well, the kitchen staff were inappropriate. Rather often. The only decent thing there was the decent waitress staff that actually had some morals.

I read somewhere that fast food joints generally are supposed to have high hygiene standards…

besides the guys who check the health administration or whatever
