    College graduates...

    What would be the minimum you'd accept for a job offer?

    Just curious, since there are ppl right now taking jobs that REQUIRE at LEAST a bachelors degree for $12/hr.
    It's not that I'm fabulous, I just really don't give a fuck about being unfabulous.

    What jobs are those? That's what 25k/yr before taxes?
    If you have a bachelors degree and that's what you're getting paid, you either chose a horrible major or must really love what you're doing.

    There are also jobs that don't require a degree that pay twice that.
    I'd really like to [verb] with you sometime. You have a/an [adjective] [body part].

    I'm just saying 12 bucks an hour with a bachelor's degree? that's not right. Makes me wonder what major it was.

    Depends on if I'm looking for a job or not and how much work/travel is involved.

    If my fridge is empty and I'm about to be evicted, I'll take the $12/hr job.
    If my wallet is fat and I've got extra leftover for Ed Hardy and Olive Garden, the sky's the limit.
    Do you even know anything about paper? It's not like steel. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU PUT PAPER IN A FURNACE? YOU RUIN IT!

    Depends on your field of study. I can tell you that with only a Bachelors in the museum field you'll make about 35-45K at the most. But with a post-graduate degree you might make up to about 65k annually, more if you are into being a director and schmoozing with financial supporters all the time. Clearly you don't get into that field for the money. For many of us college is about learning and working in a field you love and the happiness you feel from that.

    I saw it on CL a while back & my friend is looking for a job right now & he said he saw an ad on there REQUIRING a degree for $12/hr. I was like, WTF... yr kidding. He said he won't accept less than $18/hr (37,440/yr).

    I was like, damn really? If I had a BA I wouldn't want less than $50k/yr.
    It's not that I'm fabulous, I just really don't give a fuck about being unfabulous.
