Those raises are across two employers. I wouldn't have been able to achieve year 3/4 raises if I stayed with the same employer.

Private industry worker.

It mostly was a lot of hard work to get to 100k.
I have a mentor that teaches me things and I did a lot of self learning outside of business hours. I'm not top 0.1%.

Which other thread are you talking about?

That 70k thread

The people in there didn't even believe that median income with degree is 85k from statscan based on taxfiler data

There's some really interesting info in this thread (and some useless bickering esp towards the tail end).
Looks like in some areas (finance, management consulting, .?) it only takes 5-7 years to break the 100K, amazing.
My numbers are totally unrepresentative of 'typical' career path in Canada, because I am a bloody foreigner (um, sorry
'newcomer'), so I am not going to post them here.

However, I'd love to have a conversation about severe stagnation of pay in some areas of IT.

It's not, that's only for males. Combined with females, it's under 80k.

Well since the participants in the thread are males...I used that

But sure... over 50% of males with degrees make over 85k

For any females it's 50% make over 68k

Average of the two is still over 70k and they 70k is filled with below average people thinking everyone is like them when it's less than half!

dude, you bend the stats for your agenda.
The argument you laid forth in this thread is that most people with degrees earn average of $82k within 5 years.. you then went on to say most people in their early 30's are earning this...

the reality is the statscan u listed was for people age 24 to 65 and it broke it down by province... can u link where u find stat that shows <35 year olds are earning median of $80k?/ That's the only stat that I didn't believe.

so yeah, OF COURSE highly educated people will earn more.. no one disagreed with that.... .it's the underlying statements u made to push your agenda... Most <30's don't make over $80.
Most <35 don't make over $80... can you post some real stats??? and then dont cherry pick to remove women/etc... don't move the goal posts to suite your argument.
