How much $$$ does your FI / DH make?

Recommended Posts

FI is a concrete pump operator. Most people have never heard of this so I will post a picture. He is basically a crane operator that moves concrete to where ever they need it. The orange boomed truck looks just like his. The cement mixer dump the concrete into Mike's hopper on his truck and then a pump move the concrete through the pipes to where ever it needs to go.

 

He loves his job because it is fun, always different, and he only has to see his boss maybe once a week in passing, but the hours sux, his boss suxs, and the pay suxs for him (most others make around $30 but he's only been doing it for little over 3 years so he can't make the big bucks and his boss is a cheapskate!) He calls into dispatch every night to find out what time he is supposed to be at work. Sometimes midnight, sometimes 9am, can be anytime and any day. Makes it difficult to plan for meals and time together. And the hours vary every week, sometimes 30 hours sometimes 90, mostly around 45/week. Last year he brought home somewhere around $40k

I think I'm in the minority here! I make more. Then again, I have my master's and have been working for 5 years. He just finished up his Bachelor's and is in his first job. Give it 5 yrs, I'm sure he'll be making more then... the whole women making $0.80 to every $1 a man makes things makes me angry!

My FI is the supervisor of a construction company so he makes pretty good loot. I posted anonymously as well but will say it's 3 times more than me. LOL.

My hubby is a Events and Entertainment Coordinator for the casino where we both work. He makes more than I do but he is 4 yrs older and has more work experience than I. I have a degree though and he doesn't so I'm not really sure what the trade off will be. From my experience at our company, experience is more valuable than a degree.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
