There was an expose recently on City of Toronto workers. Cameras followed around employees as they took two-hour coffee breaks before going to lunch and napped all afternoon. A few friends of mine who work for the City all agree there is a general mentality of trying to do the least amount of work without getting reported for complete incompetence.

You know, it's a difficult question to answer. I know some people who make small fortunes, doing very little work requiring very little skill. They're usually people who've been with a company for many years and are "resting on their laurels" as it were.

I know some others who make rediculous sums of money, but they possess a skill that is highly in demand. A few friends of mine are ISO consultants and are paid exorbitantly for their work ... but they DO work hard even though it never seems that way since they're off all the time. They seem like they do nothing, but actually, they're just really good at what they do.

In seriousness, I don't like this "let your money work for you" mentality that some German banks advertised with exactly those words. Money can't work, and the fruits of that "work" are actually the fruits of someone else's work. I don't envy wealthy people or people who earn a good wage and like to spend it on stuff they like, that's great for them; but I do have a problem with people who live off of nothing but the interest their money is yielding - they don't make any direct contributions to society, i.e. they don't work.

C'mon, you already have it pretty easy, right?  Wink

I look at where I work, and there are people who work really hard for very little money, and then there's quite the opposite. I also see certain positions where one person does hardly anything, and their replacement will work exceedingly hard for the same money, or vice versa.

Many jobs are as busy as you want them to be. Currently I'm working my butt off for not much pay, but at the same time I'm hopefully gaining some respect from my superiors. I'm hoping this will pay dividends in the future.

You think pilots are overpaid? Since you know what the job is like and all,and every few months go through recurrent training, become an expert in your field (I guess experts make their craft look easy), basically being the core of an airline...why don't you elaborate?

And they are underpaid, if anything. 4th year skywest pilot still makes 25K a year. People need to lose their idea that pilots make 500K a year. Idon't know where that idea came from. You have to spend years at regionals (which are becoming a career nowadays) making 20-25K a year for several years before you hit the 30K a year mark. Still low considering the job. Only very senior guys at Healthy cargo carriers or Legacy carriers that make six figures, and it's not most of your career. It's after spending your whole career working up the seniority ladder.


Easiest money in my opinion? Paying people 30 million to play ball. But hey, if that's what they're worth.

Plus it is one of those jobs where i bet if say AirCanada put out a call for pilots that start at 40k they would be overwhelmed by applicants....There is never a shortage of pilot wannabe's

Too bad your job is always in jepordy, the extreme competiveness to get into the position, you put in at least 60 hours a week and the amazing amount of responsibilty. Yeah, besides that its a cake walk.

You should get 100 Bullshit Jobs...And How To Get Them by Stanley Bing. Funny this thread just got started, as I just got the book a few days ago. It's hilarious. Bullshit jobs:

- Construction Site Flag Waver
- Crumber (the people that de-crumb tables during your meal)
- Pop Diva
- Consultant
- Right Wing Talkshow Host
- Being Donald Trump
- Ayudrevic (sp?) Healer
- Aromatherapist

etc Its a really funny book.

Besides singer, actor, actress, etc, I'd probably say chiropractor or naturopathic doctor. Most chiropractors are just lying anyway (they can make your back feel better, period). Make people's backs pop and then tell them you're effectivley managing their hypertension in the process of doing so. And tell people pills don't do anything because you're not allowed to prescribe them. And naturopathic doctor because not only do you have no skills at all, but you're allowed to prescribe medication (!!!). I've heard of fourth year students in ND school that can't describe breath sounds.

Chiropractor makes around $70,000 a year, naturopathic doctors, based on how dangerous they are, make anywhere from $50,000 to $200,000 a year.

I know!!! It's so unfair that pilots get paid so much more, even though their training requires college degrees, thousands of hours of flight time, $40,000-$50,000 of their own money on flight training (unless they went military), and other such things!!!

I mean, we all know how bus drivers spend years of their lives and 50 large to get their jobs!!!

Quoting Greasespot (Reply 17):

That is because the cars they drive are not worth $250,000,000 and if they should ever die in the line of duty, they would not be immediately responsible for the deaths of the 400 people in their car too. While cops have very respectable jobs, their jobs do not take years of professional training, and thousands of hours of "on the job time" to get where they are.

You know what their job is like?!?!? Well, I guess I know what your job is like too, since I work the ramp!! Same difference, right?!? You've been in ops for 8 years, so you know better than the pilots themselves (who have been doing their jobs 3x-4x longer than you), what their jobs are like. Since I've been on the ramp for about a month now, I well know what your job is like, and I'm able to speak about it in an educated manner too!!

Wow though, 8 years, that's impressive!!!! Except compared to those captains that have been at that same airline for 30 years.....they spit on your 8 years.

That pretty much is the top pay, hence you don't really know what you're talking about.
****
Example:
MAX scale for Northwest Airlines B-747-400 Captain is $144,000/yr.
That's after spending decades working your way up the seniority/pay ladder
-For comparison, 1st yr pay at NWA is $24,000. So it's a pretty big ladder and you don't see decent pay for a while. And 99% of the pilots can't hold 747-400 seniority (and pay) for many years. I know one. He's 747 cap, retiring soon, been on it for just a couple of years.
****
MAX scale pay for US Air A330 Captain: 138,000

Canada is almost worse, so you can't argue that one.

Therefore, no you do not know what you are talking about.

MAX scale for Northwest Airlines B-747-400 Captain is $144,000/yr.

It's difficult to rate pilot's pay by year, as they are paid by the hour, and every pilot does a different amount of hours per year. As a comparison:

current NWA 747-400 captain: $177/hr
peak NWA 747-400 captain: $272/hr (between 1999-2000)

current AA 777 captain: $199/hr
peak AA 777 captain: ~$310/hr~

Also, you can average about 75-80 hours per month. 1,000 hours per year is the FAA set limit.
