Feel like I'll never make enough money...


Despite having an ortho certification they start out at 13 an hour but living on 1 income with a baby is expensive.

Its like you almost need 30 an hour working 40 a week to get by. Even if I was getting paid 25 an hr working as a hygienist working part-time Id only brng home 531 after taxes..

Idk I just wish there was an end you know?

I feel like I'm gonna be inschool forever ugh--just chasing a higher paycheck uhg.

I know what you mean. From the beginning this has been one of the biggest demotivators for me. I look at what everything costs and I look at what min wage paye and I look at how hard it is to even get A JOB (any job) and then what it takes to get a GOOD one and what it takes to get AHEAD of the current that wants to pull you under if you male anything less than that and I was just like "fuggit".

That is like minimum wage downunder.

If an option, move to Australia.

Usually get payed more in Australia for most jobs.

Most like Gold Coast as is similar to Miami.

The dad should be providing but that aside its all about being frugal. Finds the sales, go to thrift stores, etc.

Good thinking as that would be the cheapest option when taking into account the situation.

The US seems to have more options on the shelf than downunder.

Just the wages are lower in the US (even when taking exchange rate into account), but so is the cost of most things to match.

Unfortunately, it's not going to get better anytime soon. Everything goes up except for the paycheck. Might as well become a welfare junkie if not in the genetic lottery of being born and catered from somewhere that is fancy and then move to a cheaper area just to make and take more than the average worker.

Hard to live on 13 an hour. I can't offer advice but I hope you can earn more and make a decent living some day.

It’s definitely tough to get ahead earning base wages that don’t make ends meet without question, hopefully you qualify for some support programs
