Depressing Salaries

Post by jjenkins » Fri Nov 27, 2009 10:49 am

Now that I am out of radio I find myself gasping even more at the shit salaries being offered to people over the age of 16 to relocate and work full time. 24k? 28k? Holy shit! I remember the worst salary I received was 11.5k a year. Yes, I'm serious. I loved radio enough that I was willing to sacrifice to get in the door. However, after years of work and reaching the pinnacle of 30k that only lasted for 6 month I got the F out. How do people maintain marriages and lives on this horrible pay and complete lack of stability? I remember a 45 year old guy at my last station, living off of trade coupons and dressing like a teenager. Depressing shit.

I am in a major market, but weekends/swing doesn't feel like "being in radio." Don't hate, you can have the gig if you want it.

LOL of course if your a retard loser whose main concern is beer money and car payments when you're 45 feel free to stay in radio. Of course, that's only if you're currently 40 because soon radio won't even be able to offer free beer. Wow, what losers radio attracts. "Hey I might only be making 30k a year, but I got free beer and a gym membership!!!" LMAO
