Bad: Even 350 a week is nothing with the cost of living these days.
Good: I guess double the average wage. So 700 upwards.
Excellent: 1,000 upwards.

50k is pretty good all right. Its about 17k more than the average private sector salary, and 2k more than the average public sector salary, which is 48k. www.cso.ie

The best way to look at this is take home pay after tax per week, saying 100k a year means feck all really, with all the levies and increased taxes etc how much more per week does a 100k a year earner get over someone earning 50k?

It is disgraceful that the public salary is so high, the public sector should be at least 10 to 20% behind the private sector for job security alone.

I do 8 hours a week and get £106.65 (€127.46). That's not bad, is it?

I would consider any wage over €600 a week to be good and €800+ a week excellent. It is not going to work for under €400 a week.
Just got the interview for a minimum wage job as a street fundraiser.

I thought Dole was around €200 so I would be getting an extra €100 a week.
The real draw for me though is I wanted to improve my social skills and this jobs seems like a great opportunity to do so.

No its not that. I've worked sales jobs before that involved rejection and have a very thick skin.

I'm getting €300 with the possibility of bonuses, for 45 hours. Is that good?

I need at a minimum €17,500 for college. At this rate I am going to be OLD by the time I can afford that.
