Not as many as you think. Most people are still in shit tier jobs that are only barely better than yours.

Yeah, and are in serious fucking debt with their mortgages.

No they aren't. You're right around the 75th percentile for your age at $50K. A bare minimum six figures ($100K) would put you at the 96th percentile. Median for age 26 is around $32K.

Unless you live somewhere the cost of living is astronomical or you have a ton of debt (student loans, medical, big credit mistakes), you can make a lot of headway at $50K a year, especially if you are single and have no kids, which is fairly likely at age 26 (and on 4chams).

>>2802196
>Yeah, and are in serious fucking debt with their mortgages.
Eh, as long as you aren't stuck with terrible mortgage terms or a house in a terrible location, mortgage debt is fine. It's a lot of money tied up in one thing, but you're building equity, unlike renters.

But $30k in some shithold white trash town probably gets you pretty far. If OP lives in a city then $50k ain't getting him shit.

>>2802270
>where do you idiots get the idea that 26 year olds have six figure incomes
Very doable as a professional in almost any city. But again cost of living eats away at most of that.

>>2802159

No they don't. You're doing well for your age bracket.

I'm 30 and earn 20k per year because the job market in Western Europe is fucked up and I had to move to SEA to actually land a fucking job. A job that is complex enough to actually get me 6 figures if I was in London or New York. But noooo, nobody trusted the guy with no experience.

Fuck you very much.

I'm 28 and make $125k/year with an average $10k bonus/year. Do I wish I made more? Absolutely. Am I going to obsess over what others in my age are making? Nope, because I can spend that time reaching my own goals.

Not that hard. I'm literally 26 (will be 27 in early August) and I own my own home. I also made 75k last year. That being said obviously I have to pay a mortgage every month which eats up a good chunk of my earnings. That 75k was also a lot of overtime since my base is about 55k.

So yea it's not farfetched at all. And I work a stupid grimey job that only required a HS diploma when I got hired (now you need 60 credit hours in CC/university)

Correctional Officer. I work in one of the most populated counties in the U.S. which is the reason for the decent salary for the type of job. Eventually gonna be a police officer.

Also didn't try to come off as an asshole last post. As someone said, statistically most people my age aren't achieving the goals in OP's comment. But there are a lot of weird/random jobs out there that people don't think of or think they're above that can make you /comfy/ if you don't mind the bullshit.
>>
>>2803419
Semantics. Obviously I don't own it outright but hardly anyone living in their own house does. If OP meant he knows 26 year olds that own house outright then that's total BS

>>2803414
Close, but not right.
>>
It's ok anon, I'm a loser too. I'm 25, finally got my BS, and I can't find a job. I'm sitting here, still living with my parents, in an area where I need to make $80k to be ok (i.e., at this amount ~85% of each check will be going to rent, insurance, student loans, internet, etc.), watching my pathetic savings continue to dwindle.

Every time I hear about someone my age making $100k and buying their first home I legitimately want to kill myself. I hate my life.

25 years old, working on my second undergraduate in math/computer science...

I'd like to say that, in 6 years, I'll have a job lined up that will pay me more than I know what to do with.

I'm a bit disheartened by how hard I work compared to the results I get (I studied my ass off this semester and managed a 3.82 GPA... which is good, but I feel like there's something missing, otherwise I'd have a 4.0.).

I feel like I'm not getting enough out of my education. I wish I could tell myself that, by the time I graduate, I'll be worth recruiting but it is certainly not looking that way for me at the moment.

I want to think that I can keep pushing myself and I can keep getting better, but I can't even push myself since I get distracted too easily. I think the reason why I didn't do very well in school this past year is because I sit down and tell myself to study but I don't actually know how to focus. I guess I should focus more on studying smart rather than studying hard.

Thanks for being my WordPress guys. Gonna try to crush the last 30 pages of Irrational Exuberance in a single sitting then read some Islamic Law

>>2802159
Kek. You have a warped view of reality kid. Moat people your age are living with their parents and have 50k in debt.
>>
>>2803517
No shit? You nearly described me and I can't get a fucking job. I'm 25 and just got my BS in CS with a minor in Math about 2 months ago. My overall GPA was shitty (3.2) by my in-major GPA was 3.7 and I received multiple academic honors. It feels like, at least where I live, just doing well doesn't mean shit (getting degree, good GPA, working hard, internships) and you need to also go to a prestigious school or found a company or something too. That or suddenly have 6+ years of experience right out of school.

Good luck to you.
>>
>>2803539
What a surprise. The STEM meme is just that, a meme. I thought a 3.2 was considered really good (~3.5) in other majors.

Yet you see them driving around in brand new trucks and SUVs and buying all sorts of stupid shit. They can choose to improve their situation if they actually fucking moved.

>>
>>2803539
My CGPA is about 3.85 at the moment. Which is really good, but not great.
I'm not sure what the best thing for me to do will be: I don't think I'll have the skills to get an excellent job that pays 45k+ after graduating (Cucknadian here). That'd be a pipe-dream. Which is sad...

But maybe if I work hard and never put a book down I can achieve more than I think. I did finish Irrational Exuberance since posting, btw. Haven't had the diligence to sit down and read 30 pages straight in God knows when.

if you have a partner and both make 30k, you're in the top 5% of the US nationwide, but not necessarily in the state you live in.
The top 1% not only cross the 6 figures - they're making almost half a million every year.
>>
>>2802618
30k/year would still put you in the top 1% in "normal countries"
>>
>>2804535
Even for the cucked measurement that has you compete against people who don't have an income, 30k is 15k away from the 1% in the top 25 countries. There's not many civilized countries left after that, and i don't think posting here from one of those is normal.

dont worry dude comparing yourself to others is a never ending game. Wherever you go you will always find people who earn more, are better looking, etc.. Imagine you get promoted elsewhere and make 200k. You will start to hang out with colleagues and bosses who make a million and will still feel shitty. Be happy with what you have a lot of people couldn't dream of earning 50k.
>>
Fuck off larpers, I bet my 45k/y is more than most of you and your moms make combined.

Some people get legit depressed over this shit.

My only word of advice - come to EE where 45k nets you 40k and life costs are sub 500/month. Then start a business and lol @ overtime-cucks who work 80h/week so that they brag on 4chan during their 1 hour commute.

>>
>>2803548
This is true. A meme. You always hear in media that there is demand for "STEM" but you have to remember the source, it's typically USA Today or some shitrag that has misinterpreted polling. There's no more demand for "STEM" than any other jobs. It's such a large basket as to be meaningless. Certain groups within STEM are growing quickly, of course, which is usually what they're driving at.

Where I went to school (Chem Eng major), CS jobs were everywhere. Shitty ones, some of them, but not hard to make decent money. Whereas I had no experience and a crap GPA, picked up a service tech job off Craigslist and whored my way into an engineering position after a year and a half. Today I use almost none of what I spent my time in school doing, like a lot of degrees it only serves as a salary cushion.
