    depends on what the job is.

    If it comes with massive satisfaction then I'd go pretty low.

    if it had a shitty boss and shitty hours I'd be demanding a pretty high price

    It's your first night on the corner isn't it?

    Helpful hint, compete with your neighbors not by dropping the price but by providing a better service ;)

    Yeah you and 22 other businesses!

    I'll tell you the same thing I said to them.

    No one gets me long term, you get me a little here and there and when I'm done, i'm walkin.

    I would think in this economy that people might be willing to work for anything above minimum wage. icon_wink.gif

    I haven't worked for an hourly wage since high school. I would say in Salt Lake, the lowest I would go is 45k/year.

    Still, for a 40 hour work-week...that's about $21.63 an hour...icon_wink.gif

    It's cheaper to go to me and get what you need the first time then to come back to me because your dissatisfied from the other guy who charged less!

    I think that depends on a lot of things, like what the job actually is, how difficult/tedious it is, and some others. Though I'm going to say that in this economy, minimum wage (whatever the exact number is) sounds quite wonderful to this unemployed 20 year old.

    From reading your profile and all.....you're worth much more than minimum wage. icon_wink.gif

    It all depends on whats up. Based on my legal and financial education, I would assume it would be $75.00 up, but much of my commissions and fees are based on the "job" or the investment, not on an hourly wage.

    I might decide to do something for fun. I know if I decide to be ACE (or eqv)
    certified as a personal trainer, I could walk in and work at my YMCA for something like $10.00 per hour, more at a club like GENESIS or other in the Wichita area.. but it would be totally for fun only... and in some cases I donate my time, such as to the boards in which I serve as a member.

    To keep my lifestyle the way it is now. I think about $26 would work. There would not be much going to savings though. If i were unemployeed id take whatever i could find until something better came along. I had to do that for a while before i found my current position.

    Right now, I'll just be happy to get hired, period. I perceive being paid as a blessing. Used to people treating us students like slave labor.
