More moronic tripe from the brain dead crowd. What you see is a perfect example of what’s left after right,wing capitalists take everything they can and then split. The poor angry uneducated people left are looking for a scape,goat even if it’s a lie. Seriously goebbels mapped this out decades ago. a reply to: efabian


I'm a little confused with your comment..
Are you saying the right is at fault for the ill-state of the once solid Democrat counties?

Don’t forget they also live in an insanely high cost area of the US. It’s not like Wall Street is in Iowa or Wyoming.

When the hell are liberals going to wake up and understand this. I’m liberal and I get it. I moved from Chicago because of its INSANE cost of living and anti Constitutional 2A stance. California isn’t much better which is why I am, again moving, to a better area where my $ works for my family, my retirement and for my leisure.

Effing middle class.
That’s fairly high average pay.. Generally labor rights focuses on living wage, health benefits, etc, for lower income working class people.

Come on man, you know that..

No other interns are paid like that bro, including in NYC. I live here, and am walking distance from Wall st.

I’m paid less than those interns, and have a ton of exp and two masters degrees. Gov and ngo work pays much less.

I just got offered a *good* gov job near Wall Street, at $80,000 a year. And that’s a middle management job. Same job on Wall st would be like $200,000.

Also, most people live in other places than Manhattan where it’s cheaper. My two bedroom in Brooklyn is $2200 a month, split two ways. That’s $13,200 per year for me.

Not highly paid? Summer interns are making $20,000 more than the median household income.



Wall street is in new York city.
A one bedroom apartment rents for an average of $3k there.
Yeah those interns are not getting rich.
They are effing interns. Most interns in nyc are other unpaid or making a small fraction of that. Stop being bootlickers for Wall st. You are talking about one of the highest paid industries.

You guys have a very warped sense if you think those salary rates are struggling compared to other people.

So after taking into account all of that a summer intern is still making more than my salary before taxes. I live in one of the richest areas in the country and my salary is still enough to give me a comfortable life.

So yes. They are highly paid. Especially when you consider most summer interns are also putting in ridiculous hours and not getting paid at all.

Oh please, most professionals in nyc are not making as much as finance folks unless they are doctors, lawyers, maybe media, etc.

Before taxes!

This is just to rich for the pun.

Ignore state and federal taxation.

IGNORE the cost of living.

Wall Street interns are 'over' paid!!

This is idiotic. That has to be the highest intern pay I’ve ever seen. Maybe only big 4 consultancies or doctor residencies might compare.

My sister and her fiancee live in Queens. It seems like they're living well enough. I'd be surprised if they're making $80,000 between the two of them.

But somehow a summer intern making more than them combined is not highly paid.

How much does a wall street intern make after paying 50% income taxes, and shelling out considerably more for rent.

The only idiocy here is IGNORING those two pivotal things.

Please stop wasting my time with this snip.

Right, it’s taken my whole career even to start getting there.

Entry level gov job at my office is a little over $50,000. A step up is $60,000.

And many gov offices here pay LESS per position. Some start at like $35,000.

Oh please, everyone else is getting paid less and has the same pressures. You have a warped sense of who is struggling.
What about most people in nyc who make much less by level of title?

School teachers start in the $40,000s here, after already doing their internships and so on. Social workers same. Many gov workers start similar, NOT as interns.

Effing middle class.


Those bonus numbers are way off....

Associates, the position after MBA typically make about 300 to 500k all in. VPs will be 500 to 1 million. MDs sky is the limit.

Traders will make many times that if they are good. Friend of mine was making $5 million a year trading commoditiesin his early 30s.

Not an intern. Again, labor rights excepting basic workplace rights for all doesn’t focus on people in the highest paid industries. It focuses on actually struggling people.
