Approximately £13k/year. Which works out to roughly £7 an hour for 40 hours a week. Not bad for my first 'real' job; I only lasted six months, though, because I quickly found out that I'm not cut out for quoting prices, nor am I really the desk bound kind. The job itself was great, the people were great, but I ultimately decided I wasn't on the right career path.
Spent it on food, clothes, driving lessons and more clothes. £6,500 doesn't last long in the hands of a 19-year-old that has no idea what to do with it.
Changing jobs, though, was the best decision I ever made, seeing as I am now working for roughly the same money, except on a sliding scale. I don't put in the hours, I don't get the money. But, I'm happy. And not as susceptible to spending it on crap, mostly.
