While the average high school grad 25 years and older can expect to earn just $29,766 a year, median annual earnings climb to $50,281 for someone with a bachelor’s degree and to $73,100 for advanced-degree holders.

In Praise of Befriending Your Work Pals

pinkasaur:

This week Millenials got a bad rep for their behaviour in office-hours (again) - when research came out that 68% of us would sacrifice a work friendship for a promotion. Or stab the mate they spend every Friday lunchtime afternoon in the pub with for a jump up the ladder. But the headlines missed another stat buried in the research: that us ‘young professionals’ also value work mates way more than the baby boomer bosses above us. Over half of us said their work friendships were what kept them motivated.

All of which sums up the peril and complication that is having friends across the desk. 

But I’m going to go out on a limb here. Or, instead I’m going to rip off The Golden Woman of Glastonbury by saying: working nine to five, what a way to make some friendships.

This is so true!
