    Also, you don't live in USA, right OP? Judging by the Blind dick-measuring contest, I would assume cashiers get paid 80k there.

      OP
      Yes USA west coast. Econ postdocs are usually paid out of a research budget so there is only so much they can afford.

      Amazon, apparently it's key to be a cashier with competing offers from FANG.

    Just throwing it out there. Where you got your degree, doesn’t really make a difference.

      OP
      In the Academic world it’s probably more important. The profs at any given school typically come from higher ranked institutions, so at the moment they are punching above their weight based on some good papers and collaborations that came out of the postdoc
