So I fall in the category of still deciding what to do with my life (Nearly finished B.of Science - double major chemistry and microbiology) and figured this would be a good place to hopefully hear alot of peoples opinions.
I've discovered the things I enjoy doing in life and will carry on doing them but unfortunately they, at best, only return 40-50k/year which imo is not enough to make something of life and raise a family etc.
So my question is; what do you consider a figure which is the new standard, or basic figure, to be earning to be able to sufficiently look after your family, own your own home and hopefully have some left over to retire on?
I've been asking a few people this and 100k is a figure that seems to keep coming up so far.
What do you think?
