I have always been in tech and almost everyone im close (close enough that we share salaries) is in tech.

i have always wondered how much are others paid outside tech ? i know its less and i know avg us salary is 65k. But i want to know real numbers.

For ex, what does optician make in bay area ?
what does a retail shop manager make in seattle ?
what does a typical lawyer make ?
what does an insurance agent make ?
how much a starbucks barista makes ?

i googled but ranges are all over the place, depending upon website. anybody has real life numbers ?

TC 280k

      It's almost never worth Googling for salary, imo. Seems like they are always way off base.

    My uncle works at a donut shop, makes $8/hour. I work in cancer treatment analysis and make $80k. My director is close to retirement and makes $200k. I work closely with medical team (that clearly lists down side effects of the drugs in technical terms for FDA approval) and they make $65k for 3-5 years experience and $45k for new grad.

    Median US household Income is $59K.

    That should give you an idea of what life looks like outside the tech bubble.

    Glassdoor is pretty helpful if you want to look by company/position/location. Searching for "lawyer" can only result in a broad range.
