How much $$$ does your FI / DH make?
Posted 22 May 2008 - 08:16 AM
started a very interesting conversation as well as gave us all an idea of what the "median" income is for the women who answered (between $30K and $50K), it got me thinking, "How much do our Men make?" you know about the 'glass ceiling' and how men generally make slightly more? i thought it would be neat to do a follow up poll / thread for the men's incomes.
I will start, my FI has his Master's Degree from an Ivy Leauge University and works for an International Company in Purchasing and Supply Chain. I will post what he makes annonymously so he doesn't kill me

I think several things contribute to men making more money. Women are more likely to sacrifice their career plans to accomidate their husbands. Women do not ask for raises as much. Mike is in his boss' office everytime he is eligible getting it bumped up as high as it will go. There are guidelines at the university for raises. I've never had the guts to do that. But, I hope in my next job I do. Right now my raises are automatic & not negotiable. Also, many women opt for less hours to have more family time. And there are women not comfortable making more than their husbands.
I see things turning. Mike moved with me so I could follow my career goals. There are so many men here that did the same. A few years ago women passed up men in numbers for medical school enrollment.

His blackberry goes off all the time too. I just want to turn it off sometimes.
But I'm glad he loves it. And I love the stories he tells.
