DH is in automotive aftermarket sales and makes $47,000 plus bonus of $50 a month if they make budget.... Yep $50 lol
He has his own business on the side sourcing and importing genuine parts for old American vehicles (his passion) and his makes about $5k a year so it's more like a hobby then anything else, but he loves it
I am a logistics manager and all round office/accounts/data entry - $45k. I love my job and wouldn't change anything!

My hubby is a doctor and he doesn't get paid anywhere near the amounts people are saying. Works horrible shift work and long hours. I think most people way over-estimate how much doctors get. Starting salary is 55k and then it takes about 5 years to get up to 80k. I hope one day it pays off because right now it feels absolutely not worth it.
I suspect high income earners are over represented in this thread because they were much happier to rush forward and say how much hubby earns.

He made 86K before tax last year. That was working all year those 6 day, 12-15 hour days and doing extra jobs in his leave time. His base is in the 50K's. We had to pay 8k back in Hecs last tax, so that was all of his return plus thousands more.
For me the hard part is there are no extras and he is pretty much owned by the hospital he works for. He works when they say, he takes holidays when they say, and he even gets sent to regional areas if they say so which means working away from us for up to 3 months.
For use of doctor room, all work insurances, his license to practice, these fees are yearly and very expensive.
To do his surgery exams, it will be a total of 15K to the board. That doesn't include all the application fees and fees to sit interviews. (yep you pay to have an interview). This is only for the 1 st year. Every exam year is very expensive and you pay it, not the hospital.
The nurses make way more than him at the moment per hour.

You learn to live within your means no matter what you earn. Us combined dont earn as much as some of your DPs but we get by fine and have a mortgage like the average. I love that DH works 8:30-5pm Mon-Fri and no overtime or anything so it works in really well for us! He can still get bonuses but I dont care if he does.
OP DH is a Jnr Accounts Manager

OP perhaps your DH can look into something like supply chain management or logistics, seen as how he has experience on the ground floor in that area?
I think it's very sad that so many worthy and necessary positions - ones that we trust with our children and our lives - are paid so poorly.
As for bragging, my DF worked hard to get where he is and spent years as an apprentice being paid $7 an hour. I'm proud of him for getting where he is, I'm not trying to be vulgar by discussing his income in a thread that asked just that

I believe there would be quite a number of hubbers on here that could answer with the high amounts mentioned, and somewhat higher as well but are unwilling to divulge. In fact I'm sure a poll last year revealed just that where the average income of hubbers was much higher then many expected.
