Its all relative!!!
That's a very privileged life.
They are living the dream life in fairness.
100k a year, that's class.
Who wouldn't want a few kids, few cars, huge house, private health insurance, great pension plan, top food and clothes, credit cards etc?
I am 26 earned 32k last year according to my p60 i got last week and I don't own anything besides my car which I payed 5k for, which took a year to spare.
I don't even own a TV, landlords
, I rent, pay for bins, broadband, electric, car maintenance, feed and cloth myself, that's all my bills.
I could never afford a house, a car loan, credit cards, kids, holidays etc on my salary which is grand for now and keeps a roof over my head.
If you get a 100k you can't complain.
After all taxes taken out, you are still taking home around 70k net a year.That is serious money.
You have to either useless with money or just greedy, to loose yourself on that.
If someone is struggling on 100k gross, then they only have themselves to blame.
