You know lots of CAs that work for less than 100k? Sure you do. Anyone can claim anything on the internet. Perhaps accounting grads working towards their CA will make less than that....but I have my doubts lots of CAs are working for less than 70k.
"With their specialized talents, CAs get paid very well. An articling student earns $45,000 a year and the average compensation for a new CA is $72,000."
Don't bother apologizing for insinuating that I am a liar, I am sure you are well above apologies. I am sure you will just ignore this anyway, or brush it off with a "I don't buy that," just like you ignored all the other evidence that you're head is in the clouds.
What you don't know about CAs, lawyers, etc (besides everything) is that when they first get hired they start off a hell of a lot lower than what gets glorified. A new CA/Lawyer is hired and expected to work his ballz off for 60-70 hrs a week to prove his worth and to earn a piece of the partnership, they don't just give up partnership for nothing. It's when you become a partner in an accounting or law firm that you start raking in the big bucks, which is why a CA with 5 years experience averages 113k, but the average salary is more than 168k.
But I am sure you know all about how everything works...
Rocknroll said:In any event, I don't care what you think about pharmacy salaries. Try looking at ads for pharmacists....the ones that list salary....and see how many of them make 20 bucks an hour or whatever you think is common. It doesn't really matter. You think pharmacy salaries in the CF are fine. Maybe even overpaid, apparently. I don't. The CF can decide what it wants to do based on the info that they have.
Do the math. I am fine with saying $40 an hour, that is what was reported as the "low-end" in the article previously posted by dapaterson.
$40/hr * 40 hrs/week * 52 weeks = $83200 (Kinda looks like a GSO Captain's salary to me...)
Hmmm, you are short a digit there... Like I said, yes, pharmacists can work OT and all that jazz, and that can easily bring them up over 100k a year, but if you're going to start arguing that then you've got to start considering the extra money being made by CF members when they deploy, plus the various allowances, and tax exemptions, all of which aren't considered on the payscale at forces.ca which only shows monthly salary.

Achooooo... Sorry, I'm allergic to irony.
I must retire from this. It is clear that facts and statistics are no match for you. I am handicapped by the limits of reality which clearly don't apply to your world.
