No, but in South Florida, it's still normal to hold a master's degree, be offered a call center-type position at a pay rate of $16/hr. with limited benefits, and then be made to feel as if you're being done a favor by your employer.

Please, don't make me vomit.

Literally all my friends in South Florida make $50k or more and none of them have master's degrees. I guess if you slacked off during school, got no internships, no related work experience and majored in a trivial subject such as Art then yeah...

That must be the case. Art degree and that is about all.

If I were a hiring manager, I would offer you a job at $9.25/hr (knowing your mentality and how anti-FL you are). So, better stay in Kalifornia.

Too many people think they can just major in whatever, have no related work experience or internships and land a high paying job with benefits. I have friends in Orlando working where their company is hiring, but they can't find qualified people to fill the positions.

Florida is the easiest state to get a job in heath care especially working with seniors, the hiring managers are pretty begging people to take jobs lol

50k is a decent salary, not big money but in today's economy its not a bad salary especially if you are single with no kids.
