What do you guys do? I need some inspiration and ideas on places to apply to because nowhere pays around here in the Jersey area. I'm looking to work somewhere that makes $15+/hr so I can use that money and invest in real estate so I don't have to work a shit job for the rest of my life lol

I work in retail and make about $12.00 an hour. However, I never get to work more than 30 hours a week and have no benefits. If I lived alone I wouldn't be in very good shape.

It's all about where you live.
$15 is minimum wage here, and working 80 hours a week you probably couldn't even afford rent.
From my perspective, going to college for a degree is the main way to get higher paying jobs, but you can also look up trade jobs. Look up stuff like plumbing, electrician work, etc

Trades are paying pretty well right now.

Have a buddy who went to welding right out of HS and is making bank in ND

Without a degree or other significant skills youd be looking at labor jobs.

All depends on your area, where I am minimum wage is $11.50CDN and the best pay I've ever got was working for a Contant/Call Center for $15.50.

It varies on a lot where you live because of the cost of living and the minimum wage. Life isn't meant to be easy for us man. I live in Massachusetts and minimum wage is $12 here but it sucks cause the cost of living is through the rough and taxes... forget about it. Personally I think your best bet is staying at a job and getting your raises but I don't know how that works in other places here in MA you get a raise when you hit 3 months and then every year after. That's helped me a lot.

It's all based on location considering different affording costs. I work in a Verizon corporate Store(Not a 3rd Party) and it's 12.50 and hour but the commission makes up for it tremendously
