Heya!! I just got a job with the help of ur advice. I've only had minimum wage jobs up til now, but this one pays $66k a year at an office. (An office!!) I thought this was like, really amazing. But one of your articles mentioned that 60k wasn't a lot, and sometimes I see ppl talk about their salaries and people dispute whether or not they're making a lot.
I feel kinda naive not knowing what counts as a lot. I don't want to be taken advantage of for not knowing my work's worth, but as a starting graphic designer, I have no idea of how to figure out what is reasonable. Can you help explain it to me?
Thanks so much, I love your podcast, I've been listening to the episode about what to do on your first day almost religiously
Oh my precious cake pop, this is a rich and meaty question and we’re thrilled you asked!
First off, $66k a year is a great salary. I don’t believe you’re being taken advantage of, so don’t be anxious or feel worthless. You’re crushing it. I’m not sure when we said $60k isn’t a lot of money, but I hope in context it made more sense.
Salaries depend on a lot of factors:
1. Your industry. When I started out at the entry level in book publishing, my salary was $23k. An engineer’s entry level salary is more like $60-$80k.
2. Your longevity. 23-year-olds generally make lower salaries than 40-year-olds.
3. Your proven value/raises. If you prove yourself valuable to the company, you’ll get raises in recognition of your awesomeness. And if you’re not getting those raises… ASK FOR THEM.
4. Your geographic location. In high cost of living areas (HCOL), salaries will generally be higher. In low cost of living areas (LCOL), they’ll be lower. This is why a nurse in Ardmore, Oklahoma probably makes a lot less than a nurse in Chicago, Illinois.
All of which is to say: I honestly don’t know whether $66k is reasonable compensation for your particular job! But I DO know how you can find out. Go to Glassdoor.com and use it to research the average salaries of people with your job in your region. That’ll give you a sense of what your peers are making. If you’re well below that margin, then you need to either ask for a raise or job hop your way into a higher salary. You should do this during every job search as well, so that you’re not blindsided by an offer.

Lastly, I want to make a point about the subjectivity of wealth. Some people need more money to get by. This might be because of medical expenses, living in a high COL area, they have a large family to support, or they’re deeply in debt. Others don’t need much! So for SOME people, $66k might seem like not a lot of money because it doesn’t cover their bills, while for others it feels like lambourghini money. Every individual’s situation is different, which is why personal finance is PERSONAL. We go over this in a lot more depth here:

Can you imagine how hard it is to be a geologist/paleontologist/archeologist in the ATLA universe? Really any job involving rocks and dating things via rock layers must just be exhaustively difficult. But I bet there’s also a whole branch of science devoted to dissecting old earthbender battles based on rock formations, which sounds like delightful fun.

So my latest obsession is apparently the official twitter for the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is about half recall announcements for various shitty amazon products and half…..memes? pseudo-memes?? works of surrealist art??? what do i even call these

Whoever made these is either a random middle-aged government worker who’s spent enough time with Young Internet People to be at least 60% sure what a meme is or a Gen Z artistic genius and i can’t decide which
