True, but you can only cut so much unless you want to eat Ramen every day and live by candlelight at home. That's when you have to find ways to make more money.

Yes. Some entry level jobs in some industries make more than adults in other industries!! Some industries are inherently low-paying and will never reach a $100K salary regardless of 20+ years of experience.

I've seen customer service jobs in San Francisco offering $70K/year.
