I'm about to get a promotion with a decent increase which got me wondering, about the income of others. What income group does the C&G attract?

Getting personal, huh? LOL. I voted for $5-18K because I am in school and work part-time. $10/hr is pretty good and I make the very low end of that scale. Most of it is saved, I am proud to say. 8)

America cant work with out the middle class. Apparently the Govt. Doesnt know that 85% of all taxes come from middle class. So why to they want to kill it?

50-70 although that might increase this year. I own a nice 1100 sq ft house if you include the basement its a 2200 sq ft. about 4-6 cars off and on. and Debt free plus a nice 6 figures in the bank. but My stock is worth as much delphi's.

5-10k. I'm still a student, but I get more hours than most people my age do, and a pretty good wage to boot.

A thousand bucks a year BV?! :blink:

Wow... my parents made me work for my allowance, starting when I was eight. I made 5 bucks a week in return for doing dishes, pulling weeds, washing the cars, etc.

Then the money stopped coming in at my eighteenth birthday, therefore getting a job was necessary.

Apparently, my parents threw out Doctor Spock's book after two chapters... :lol:

I am going to make over $50k this year. My partner makes nearly the same, so that helps.

Add Toronto and Vancouver to your list, too. With our housing prices (can't buy anything for less than $350k anywhere near either of these cities) and insurance prices (Toronto has the highest auto insurance in North America, probably the Western World), you have to be rich to live in either of these cities.

I'd be embarassed to respond. I really cant vote either. I have had 1-2 jobs a year for the past 6 years and was self employed for 20 prior and much of my income then was always reinvested, so Net was very small.

Best employee year was 32,000 in 8 months - 3 years ago

Best self employed gross was 55,000 in ?95 I think, net was reduced to 10,000 or less.

Currently Id be around 40,000 with a full years work which = about 1.5 years work for most. In other words, no life, no responsibilities at home, no time with the family, just let everything go right straight to hell. Thats what happened 3 years ago.

What happened to the 40 hr work week ? What happened to an honest days work for an honest days pay ? What happened to family values ? Responsibilities at home ?

57 hours this week, 59 last, bla bla bla

I saw nice all-brick newer homes in Woodbridge for $ 400k to $ 500k CDN (that would be about $ 320k to $ 400k US) for a really nice house, but you probably wouldn't want to live there. I'd fit right in from all the Italians I saw! :lol:

Why the heck is auto insurance so high? Driving there was WAY easier than in any major Northeastern U.S. city.

Oh, yeah, the poll. God, dsuupr, what an invasion of privacy! Just kidding. I do ok, but for all the education, it's not THAT great and I'm exhausted all the time.

I guess I should state that I'm in the 70,001 to 90,000 range. Asking everyone else to divulge and not telling my own seems a little jerky.

That's pretty good for Portland if not living in Lake O, the West Hills or West Linn. Aren't you in property management?

Insurance fraud and street racing was a very serious problem here at one point.

Thanks, f**king ricers.

There are two reasons Toronto has the highest insurance rates in North America 1. Because they CAN - take a good look at those marble towers downtown. They are all banks and insurance companies. Makes ya wonder, eh? Two governments went down to defeat in the 80s over the threat of public insurance. 2. Sigh. I'm gonna catch hell for this one, but here goes: "new" Canadians. Now before ya all get up in my face about being "racist," hear me out. I've had two insurance agents and somebody high up in Motors Insurance tell me this. I also had one rather uncharitable client observe: "well, what do you expect? Six weeks ago they were herding goats and now they are driving a cab." I have driven in other whacky places, like Montreal and Sao Paulo and let me tell you why those places work: everybody drives badly the same way! In Sao Paulo, the scooters and motorcycles squeeze up the lanes between the cars on the freeways. It scared the hell out of me, but there it works because everyone can anticipate how the other bad driver is going to react. In Rio, the bus driver hands out change, shifts gears and careens around twisty roads at 80 km/hr. in a packed bus! In Toronto, we have 150,000 new people every year from all over the world. Nobody knows how the other guy is going to drive. You get the proverbial "polit Canadian" trying to be courteous and being over run by other, ruder more aggressive drivers. YOu get people from countries like China where road signs are mere suggestions totally ignoring the rules of the road. This is the reason ALL new drivers, whether 18 or 50 get treated like criminals with insurance in this province. It isn't really a matter of whether or not new Canadians are worse drivers than the locals (although I would challenge that), but rather that they have different "habits." Insurance companies are experiencing "significant" losses from "new Canadians" and because they can't descriminate base on nationality, they charge everyone a higher premium.

Hmmm I haven't paid more than $1800 annually in insurance since I turned 25, last 3 years have all been under $1500 so I guess I get off easy. Haven't called a car insurance company other than signing up or cancelling in 15+ years.

Survey: I guess I've got my "eye on Cadillacs" but I don't spend more than 25% of my annual income on a car. Maybe when debt (mortgage) free I will but I'd rather spend on travel and invest in my future at this point.
