I was going through my reader a few days ago and somehow wound up at an old post of Decorno's. In it she asked her readers to post anonymously what they did for a living and how much they made. As she noted Parade magazine puts one out every year but I liked reading hers as it was made up of just regular people not celebrities. It seemed that the average person made about 50,000. Here in California that doesn't get you that far. I really feel for young people now days as it is getting more and more difficult to get a job and a lot of people are losing theirs. She had huge amount of people that posted about what they made and it is interesting to look at, to see what is going on in the workplace. You can read about it here.
