One of my younger friends of applying for civil engineering at university.
But one of the things that bothers him though is that civil engineers aren't paid that well. Nice starting salary of 25k but only 60k once at the top. He's considering doing another career because of its poorer pay.
But I was shocked to hear him say this and thought 60k was considered a good wage?
Is the standard of living becoming so high that 50k-60k nowadays is becoming a poor wage? Particularly for university graduates??
Is the average wage really rising that fast nowadays that if you're not 60k+ you'll struggle in life??
