Between the guys not wanting to reveal this info and the possible tendancy to exagerate from those who do you may not get much of a response to this thread. Perhaps you should put it in the form of a poll. Since that could ask for ranges (ex. 50K-60K), and responses are anonymous, you might get a better response. JMO.

Net or gross?

For our US members, 80K CDN is about 60K USD.

The Burger King around here start new employees out at $7.25 an hour. That is $290 on a 40 hour week. AND the benefit of half price meals.

Dunkin donuts is hiring for $10 an hour! And Aldis is $12 an hour to cashier. Funny, there is always a panhandler standing in the intersection between the 2 most days also

Does ALDIS Nord pay better? I assume they would.

EDIT: it looks if they start out lower, but get a $2 raise every year.

As has been stated, these threads never go well. And since the OP didn't take the suggestion to reformat this thread as a poll, I'm just going to shut er' down. Let's keep the week before Christmas a positive one.
