What jobs get what salary?

So by googling online, I’m finding that the average salary for many professions is 40k ish. I know this can’t be true though as that’s what teachers get soon after starting off and their pay is considered ‘bad’. So if you’d like to answer some of these questions I’d be so grateful:
What’s your job and what salary do you have after how many years experience?
How many hours a week do you work and how many weeks holiday do you get?
Also what degree did you do to secure that job?
Thanks a million for the response

Ok, I'll bite.

Work in a residential unit for children in care. At it 5 years. On roughly 43,000 a year including sleepover. Don't do overtime.

the median salary here is about 43k so it would make sense that many jobs pay that or around that.

I would imagine Dublin and to a lesser extent Cork skew that though. There's a big disparity in salaries between them and the rest of the country.

Post primary teachers don’t get that soon after starting off. A lot are not in permanent contracts so don’t get those wages and many work reduced hours as the full hours aren’t available.

I get give or take, it works out at about with expenses 140,000 a year and I pay 30.3% tax on that, so it’s about a net 100,000 and out of that 100,000 I run a home in Dublin, Castlebar and Brussels. I wanna tell you something, try it sometime…

So someone with an honours degree and a hdip together with expierence in the field is now considered the bottom of the curve for salary expectations?

Why do you include expenses may I ask? My work requires me to travel extensively and refunds me the cost of all said travel, I assume yours does the same. It is not the same as renumeration as I am only cliaming these expenses due to work requirements to be in X country for X weeks.
