Are high salaries becoming normal?
In the US it seems like there's a lot of people who make 6-figure salaries who aren't doctors/lawyers/etc. I guess it's the tech industry but that's a lot of money... Meanwhile there's so many more people who don't make a livable wage. I feel like the gap is getting bigger.
Even a normal 1 bedroom apartment where I want to move to is almost $2k per month. I can't afford that on my modest (but not low) salary. It's like apartments are being priced only for the people who make 6-figures, or couples who both work.
Where are all these 6-figure salaries coming from? What jobs? All tech? I'm just curious - it seems like more and more people make a lot of money, maybe more than necessary? Not to sound jealous or anything -- I'm just saying that some salaries seem really overpaid while others seem really underpaid, and a modest middle is becoming obsolete.
