    Household income in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you are personally making 100 grand or more annual in USA, you are in top 7%. If your household (with 2 or more wage earners) is grossing 100G's, you are in top 17%.
    My feeling is the 83% of households and the 93% of individuals making LESS than 100grand, would consider that a handsome salary, or "BIG' money.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    $100,000 in rural areas is... very comfortable. $100,000 in a large city is meager,at best.

    It's all relative.

    Of course it's relative, but most city dwellers don't make $100 gs I bet.
    All the store clerks, waiters, bartenders, police, teachers, taxi drivers, government employees, warehouse workers, even construction workers, probably don't make 100g in the cities.

    They live outside of the city and commute, or they live I'm the really crappy parts and commute a little less.

    The average price of a home in New York City is $2.5 million. That is, very roughly, a $12,000/month mortgage payment.

    That's because you listed a bunch of occupations that don't require much in the way of education, marketable skills, etc.

    You don't need much upstairs to be a store clerk, or bartender...or teacher...

    and people who DO get expensive educations but not wise enough to select a field that isn't SUBMERGED with applicants for every opening, temporarily take jobs as clerks and bartenders.
    temporarily meaning YEARS?

    Communism is becoming extinct. Even China is loosening it's grip via they're gradual currency reform.
