what do you girls think about another poll for our FI's/DH's so we can get a sense?
How much $$$ do you make?

And I too got a masters degree out of college. Teaching at a local college wouldn't be so bad now that I think of it. But I will have to wait until I'm ready for a career change. I'm a TV reporter for a top ten market and that is extremely fun but demanding. I can't complain about the pay though, I will be pushing 100k this year and I'm a year from turning 30. Life could be worse.
the salary structure is VASTLY different than in print journalism. here in chicago, many of the big local stations fired/dropped the contracts of the biggest anchors so they could stop paying their HUGE salaries - and hire new talent that is less experienced and would have no problem being paid $75-80K compared to what they were making in a smaller market.
with regard to teaching though - i am able to fit it into my regular schedule. part of the reason i decided to teach is because that is something i can fall back on doing part time in addition to freelancing if and when i decide to take time off to have kids. i honestly like working so i cant see myself giving up my job completely to have kids, but then i dont know what the maternity leave policy is like at my company - i know it's partially paid. but if i have to leave, then i can always teach part time and freelance. the masters in journalism gives you a lot of freedom that other journalists without it dont have.

By the way I would love to see a 2nd pole.

We get raises every year and when I finally earn my masters in August and get bumped up a year, it will go up about 2k. BUT, we are moving back home and I will end up making about 5k less than this year...it will be worth it though because I want to be closer to family and friends.
Can't complain because I only work 187 days a year and have retirement and insurance.

I have a Master's in Medieval Studies and did 3.5 years of a PhD as well, but didn't complete it.
I think I'd like to become a jeweller and open my own shop.
