Wow, after reading all these, I feel like I'm really behind the curve.  Looks like I need to go get a JD or a software engineering degree to catch up.  It's not a race, I know, but I want to FIRE really bad.

Currently:

Title: Advanced Distributed Learning Specialist (I make e-learning courses for the military as a contractor)
Salary: $64,000
Education: BA in English, MA in Education
Age: 28
Experience: <1 year

Also, I'm an Air Force Reservist
Title: 1st Lieutenant, Public Affairs Officer, USAFR
Salary: ~$15,000 per year for the minimum 12 weekends plus 2 weeks during the summer, then some intangibles on top of that
Experience: 3 years

Here are past numbers, just for kicks:

Title: High School English Teacher in Rural Missouri
Salary: $36,000
Experience: 2 years

Title: Staff Sergeant, Air National Guard Munitions Systems
Salary: ~$10,000, plus benefits for 12 weekends and 2 weeks during the summer
Experience: 5 years

In the past, I've also worked at Domino's Pizza, worked at a hardware store, worked at the supermarket, worked on campus during college, do farm work during the summer, and publish on Amazon KDP and do some other online stuff, and all of those were in the $20,000-$30,000 range, tops.  Domino's was a decent $15 per hour, which was nice as a college student.  Still feel like I'm scraping by, although my savings rate is around 75%.

I'm a GS-12 paper pusher for the Army and a cyberspace engineer in the AL ANG. Is there anything you can do to cut out all the pretty graphics and other overhead so we can get through a 30-minute class in under 3 hours? It's hard sharing a T1 with 100 other people on a drill weekend.

He/she probably means they need the MS for the credit hours.  I didn't have the credits after undergrad, so I went and got my MBA as a way to get to 150.  My current employer won't pay for a class and the test (~$5k?) and I don't really need it so I haven't gone after it, but one of these days.
Not to derail the thread, but you don't need the $3k Becker class to pass the CPA exam. I've passed 3/4 parts with just south of 1.5k for exam fees and study materials (both for all four parts). The materials on Another71 are extremely high quality, and pennies compared to the cost of the big name study programs.

I do.  I made it through elementary, middle, and high school, and then a very competitive undergrad program, and an MBA without ever having learned to study.  I don't have the willpower and self control to actually do it on my own.  I know I need the structure.  Weird, but true.

Finance Mgr, F100: $105k + 10% bonus potential (usually pays out 100%+, up to 130-140%)
Age: 34
Experience: 10 yrs
Education: BS Accounting, MBA

I get to update mine.  Alerted that I was given a 3% raise, and then a $6300/yr "market adjustment" to compensate for them bringing in lower-level people at a pay close to mine, so I needed to be "Caught up".  So now I'm at $114,450, which is pretty sweet.  And bonus payout was at ~130%.  Nice.

130% of what? Base pay??

Target.  Target is 10% of base pay.  So target was $10,500, payout is 130% or $13,650.

Job1 Software Developer for Big Company with TPS reports and stuff
Salary: 220k
Age: 38
Experience: 19y
Education: 2 year community college

Job2 Software Developer contractor for another company
Hourly based on work: about 80k this year

Software developer here too, and salaries for software devs top out at around $130k. The only way get it higher is to become an architect or move into a management role. What part of the country are you in? What are some companies that offer these high salaries to software devs?

Gotcha.

We're lucky to get 1% as feds... still, good bennies otherwise. It's interesting to see the differences in pay structures between industries.

Big company near Seattle. The Salary includes my cash "bonus" which pretty much is the same every single year so I consider it Salary. I'm not sure how it's extra motivation if it is always the same lol... whatever. After reading Living FI's story (Dr Doom on this forum), I take my job a lot less seriously as we have had nearly the same exact experiences in tech it is comical.

I wish I was interested in software dev -- salaries seem much higher than in the infrastructure world. Maybe I'm just not in the right places yet. :P

Wow, after reading all these, I feel like I'm really behind the curve.  Looks like I need to go get a JD or a software engineering degree to catch up.  It's not a race, I know, but I want to FIRE really bad.

Currently:

Title: Advanced Distributed Learning Specialist (I make e-learning courses for the military as a contractor)
Salary: $64,000
Education: BA in English, MA in Education
Age: 28
Experience: <1 year

Also, I'm an Air Force Reservist
Title: 1st Lieutenant, Public Affairs Officer, USAFR
Salary: ~$15,000 per year for the minimum 12 weekends plus 2 weeks during the summer, then some intangibles on top of that
Experience: 3 years

Here are past numbers, just for kicks:

Title: High School English Teacher in Rural Missouri
Salary: $36,000
Experience: 2 years

Title: Staff Sergeant, Air National Guard Munitions Systems
Salary: ~$10,000, plus benefits for 12 weekends and 2 weeks during the summer
Experience: 5 years

In the past, I've also worked at Domino's Pizza, worked at a hardware store, worked at the supermarket, worked on campus during college, do farm work during the summer, and publish on Amazon KDP and do some other online stuff, and all of those were in the $20,000-$30,000 range, tops.  Domino's was a decent $15 per hour, which was nice as a college student.  Still feel like I'm scraping by, although my savings rate is around 75%.
ADLS! You bastard! ;)
I'm a GS-12 paper pusher for the Army and a cyberspace engineer in the AL ANG. Is there anything you can do to cut out all the pretty graphics and other overhead so we can get through a 30-minute class in under 3 hours? It's hard sharing a T1 with 100 other people on a drill weekend.
Have you considered going semi-FIRE and keeping your reserve job? Lifetime cost savings are huge, and it could cut your initial NW requirement in half.
I'm looking at quitting FT work next year and drilling for another 6 to make 20.

Awesome suggestions - I've actually thought the semi-FIRE idea before since it takes such a big bite out of the NW needed, but I'd like to have a bigger 'stash before I pull the plug.  I figure that even if I reach FIRE before I hit my 20, I'll continue to drill anyway.

And right there with you on the ADLS - I've dealt with ADLS constantly in my 8 years in the ANG and USAFR and I've hated how poorly designed the materials on there are too...  Cyberawareness Challenge is everybody's terrible perennial fave to hate on since the material is common sense and the videos hog so much bandwidth.  No telling how many hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent designing and developing that damn useless thing.

That said, I think the general trend is positive - a lot of the old first-generation CBTs were made by the lowest bidder (apparently with PowerPoint '98) and are reaching the end of their "serviceable lifecycles," and new stuff should be rolling out over the next few years, course by course.

I actually do ADLS strictly for the Coast Guard, though, so I won't be able to improve any of the AF or DOD courses :(

If only I could get one of those cush GS jobs... :D

It's good to know whenever I want to feel like crap I can come here and see how much big money nearly all of you are making.

I think I posted in the winter that I was making 45k at an accounting job. I was going insane it was so boring so I left after 3 months.

Most recently I was a courier for the on demand app Postmates, and made what equals about a salary of $25k. That was until the past few weeks when work load has fallen to almost nothing and I'm lucky to make $30 a day.

I have the best wife though. She is okay with me being a poor bloke as long as I meet my financial obligations (I do).

Yesterday I had an interview which used up 3 hours of my life. Hell no.

I think it would make more sense to express earning in terms of dollars per hour instead of a yearly salary.

For example someone in "big law" may earn 300k a year but work 80 hrs/week while another lawyer may earn 150k a year but work 40 hrs/week.

It would also be cool if people posted their real income and their income adjusted for cost of living in a specific city. I see a ton of 6 figure or near 6 figure incomes. There is a huge difference between 100k in San Fran and 100k in Des Moines, Iowa IMO.

Using KC, MO would be a great standardized COL.

For example, if I live in San Francisco and make $105k my standardized income for KCMO would be ~60k.

So true re: cost of living.  I live in a state that most would consider the lowest of the low,,,Mississippi. But you can still do well, it just takes a while.

Me: Sports Medicine Coordinator for a physical therapy company but I'm not a PT.
Salary: 101k, started at 27k in 1997
Age: 41
Education: BS, MS

Wife: Quant Analyst
Salary: 100k
Age: 36
Education: BS

I've worked for the same company for 19yrs and the wife has been with her company for 13yrs.

Or make everything based on San Fransisco.  For me to go to San Fransisco requires that I have a salary of about $175k based on what I make now (in Iowa) :-)

It's more fun to go that way for us LCoL folks.

Cop 50k (about to get a 20-30% raise), excellent benefits, early retirement. No degree besides police academy (most Officers have a degree these days, I'm an exception). Our pay varies wildly throughout the country. My Sgt. made well over 100k in NYC; some  police in rural areas only make mid 20's to low 30's.

Woah! I just ran the numbers based on bestplaces.net COLA calc. No wonder why Quora has questions like "Is 120K enough to live on in San Fran?"

$97K + 15% bonus target (or, you know, over a quarter million + bonus if I lived in San Francisco :)

I'm a manager of marketing analysis for a F500, though I earned almost as much as a statistical analyst with considerably less hassle, though I like my current job a bit better.  A BA is a prerequisite and a masters is greatly preferred (almost required) for both jobs.
