I was curious how much people on here made, given that the guy on Newsnight suggested that 80k wasn't in the top 50% how well does GRcade measure up to the general public?

I would suggest it might be more interesting if the bands were less broad.

I've made it a bit less board.

Could have done more than 5 options! Some broad poll answers there. EDIT: poll updated.

My base salary is "less than 50k" but adding overtime and commission bring me to "less than 100k". Unfortunately not quite in top 5% of earners either!

:lol: You've ruined the poll with that. 44% voted for it so far. :slol:

I should have been more specific.

In one band, but I'm on the reserve list for a new role that would put me into the next band. Been waiting almost three months now and I'm getting bored. :lol:

This is a good thread idea but since people are taking the piss I'll reset the poll to describe actual bands. One moment...

You bloody love the word bourgeois Karl.

This would be more interesting to know disposie income. Like £40k a year with three kids in London is fairly gooseberry fool but £30k in the north with no kids usually means pure good holidays.

I mean, it's better than a slight tax raise, the worst thing in the world, I guess.
