    Panhandle? Just about anywhere in the state including the bigger cities that's what I would expect. Would say entry-level is 35-45, doesn't really touch 50.

    My only experience is Pensacola and Tallahassee. Hate to hear that it’s the same in the actual metros with higher COL. We are such a broken fucking economy.

    Wages are stagnant. I came out in 09 and was kept at intern pay at $12 an hour for like year and a half before they realized with OT they were paying me like 75k then they salaried me at like 52k. GF came out of college in 2015 and she was starting around high 30s/ low 40s but that was in non-profit.

    My wife works for a strict Catholic family in the O&P industry and she has yet to make over $30k and she's been there for almost 5 years now.

    They were so accommodating when we had our baby that they gave her a whole 3 days of maternity leave before she had to use all of her PTO and then go on disability. Then they allowed her to work 1 hour less per day during the week but wouldn't bump her pay to offset the missing time so she effectively took a pay cut to get back into the workforce. All this so she could pay her student loans

    the assumption is kids in their 30s have roommates and no kids so lol they'll be happy.

    Maybe it's more 40k-50k now but really not much higher than when I came out in 06, if at all. I think the top of our entry level band was 45. Maybe in Miami/Ft Lauderdale it's a little higher but there's so much suburb availability in Florida wages can stay low.

    It was a terrible place. They laid people off every single month to get headcount down because our private equity overlords wanted to go public. After working about 14 straight months of these kind of hours, and immediately after a meeting where my bosses and some big shots from BofA laughed about being too big to fail, I was laid off.

    I made that coming out in 2003 w/ a business degree. We hire engineers at $60+ and if you did anything technical/programming you can make that or more straight out of college

    In the study, researchers analyzed salaries of 310,000 entry-level positions from nearly 1,000 organizations across the United States.

    Based on the analysis, 2018 college grads in the United States will make on average $50,390 annually. That is 2.8 percent more than the 2017 average ($49,000).

    “With the 2018 U.S. inflation rate hovering just over 2 percent, real wages for this year’s grads are virtually flat,” said Korn Ferry Senior Client Partner Maryam Morse. “However, with competition for top graduate talent so fierce, it’s critical that companies pay competitively, create an engaging culture and provide clear paths for advancement.”

    Meant w/ a business degree of sorts. Even my wife made in the 40s w/ a fashion marketing degree before the economy hit the shit.

    I assumed it was be around 50...and it seemed to be according to the study posted. That's a lot more than 35

    is this where we talk about hyper regional specific variation in wages especially entry level wages and on a message board disproportionately made up of college football fans in the South or in distressed midwestern regions that number may be lower even substantially lower than the national average for the average users experience

    Companies take advantage of the no state income tax thing. But as usual, Florida is just a weird state.

    I had to move home for familial reasons right after college. Cost of living here is fairly low, especially given the lack of state income tax. Certainly doesn’t excuse the fact that wages have been stagnant since I graduated almost a decade ago. I’ll have to move to add to my income since boomers move down here and just park their lifeless corpses in management roles until they actually die.

    If companies can get huge tax cuts to make up for years of paying and trying extra hard to dodge liability, then they can figure out a way to reward people who paid their shit off. Tight giveaways can go to people too.
