I am a CSR in Canton, Ohio. What good paying jobs in the Customer Service industry are there...any links, websites, etc?

What is minimum wage there? I want to accept a job that will pay the bills and also have some spare money Can anyone tell me what not to settle for to be able to do this...
Thanks ahead of time

Rents can vary widely, depending upon where you choose to live, what kind of amenities the apartment offers, etc.

Up to the time I saw this post I thought the min. wage was a federal number not a state number. Seriously, isn't it set by the feds?

There is a federal minimum wage but the state legislature can set their own minimum wage to be higher than that if they want. Can't go lower than the fed except for the slave jobs like servers and select others.

that is not entirely true. Yes, the going rate is about $10.00/hr, but, CSR jobs are hard to come by right now.

the rest is all bologna!

The minimum amount is set by federal, but each state can make it higher if they want. Currently, the highest minimum wage is $9.79 in San Francisco (CA is $8).

SF is a city. CA is a state, so therefore you're saying a city can set the min. wage? Or. . . did CA set the rate for SF?
