Bossman is a public insurance adjustor dealing with mostly property fires and I love what we do here and more importantly, what I do! The pay is in the $30-35K mark, but the perks of working in a home office rock! Plus, bossman is a doll (he even came to my DW) and my only other co-worker is fab! We get along like a family business

I think this is a very interesting topic, Alyssa, especially since I'm in career change mode right now. This past school year I made $21,500.00 as a Special Education paraprofessional (what that really means is I deal with all the abuse from children that are emotionally disturbed and do a lot of other people's work for them). I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology (I don't recommend majoring in that if you ever want to make $) and I have 15 credits towards a Master's degree in Applied Behavior Analysis. Unfortunately jobs in this field require hard work and not much pay at least not until you at least have a Master's Degree.
I thought this was the field I wanted to get in because I enjoyed working with children classified as developmentally disabled. However, this past school year has been an uphill battle. School districts just want you to shut up and deal with it and don't like being told that some kids just should not be in a classroom setting where they can continue to harrass and assault other students and staff on a daily basis. Some kids need more help than a public school can give. I expressed my opinion on this to the higher ups and was just relieved of my duties last week. Today i just received a letter of reprimand that is being put in my file because when I was told to leave I went to the classroom and took everything I paid for with my own money out. I thought you were supposed to take your belongings with you when you left a job?? I was told it was insensitive because the kids didn't even have pencils to write with. I think they should have thought of that before they paid me so little, had me buy supplies out of my own pocket, and then fired me!! Sorry for the rant and hijack, just got that letter in the mail!
woah crazy story! You're amazing for standing up for yourself, the kids, and other staff members! Things will get better soon!

I will make a little over $50,000 this year. For where we live that is pretty decent money. I could never live where I grew up downstate on that salary.
Overall, I am not doing bad for not having a college degree of any kind. I probably should get one of those at some point though.

How do I feel about the economy right now? I will not let it affect me and see it as a challenge and an opportunity to prove myself. It will eventually rise again as it always does.
