droggo, in an Capitalistic society, there will always be people who do better than you and worse than you. PERIOD. Of course there are the top and
the bottom but the vast majority fits this.
Think outside the box. You want to make more? Go into sales. Teach a man to sell and he will never go hungry. Mechanics make pretty good money. I
just did a loan for a 20 year old kid who has been a mechanic for 2 years. He is at the starting, base, lowest pay rate and he makes 28k a year and
that is in a low cost of living area. He and his wife who is in school full time and works full time as a cashier(she makes 19k a year) Just bought a
new house, had 10% down, no car payments and no credit card debt. She is going to be a nurse when she finishes college. They aren't crying, they
I did a loan a few years ago for a guy who was just a plain car mechanic making about 50k a year(which is average) and he opened his own transmission
shop. He makes 250k a year. Yeah Capitalism!!
The owner of my company has a high school degree. He got out of school and went to work pumping gas, then he cleaned carpets, then he sold cars. He
started doing mortgages and is a sharp guy. He is a millionaire as far as portfolios go. HE didn't cry about not finding a job, he found one. We
are certainly not in the super job market area of the world either.
I know waiters at upscale restaurants who make 70k a year. They are good at what they do though. Not just any joe can do that job
If you can't find a job you want, find a job that pays. They are out there, you have to think out of the box though.
