I feel really sorry to the people where 15$ is an hour of work.


I work for $8.11/hr. :/


=\ indeed, 15 a hour at full time is about 27K thats under the poverty line.


Lol no it isn't, and it's not even close.

$15 an hour is comfortable in most states, as it is more than double the federal minimum wage.

The actual poverty line is around $12,000/year. Why are you trying to make people feel bad?


Per perosn, or per family. A family can;t surivive with 12K, a perosn bearly can.


Per person, of course. The poverty line raises with each added individual.

good call, don't know why I though ~30K was poverty. 12K just seems so low.

Anyway a tip for all you young kids out there, highschool and college are not social events, try hard and you WILL succeed in live, don't try hard and you will be paying for it when you older.

Rich people tend to stay rich by being cheap. Now I don't know anything about this map pack (only posting in this topic because it was on the front page), but if it's not worth the money, then it's not worth the money.

It's actually $15.75 but that's just my summer student job so it's only for 4 months.

But for 8 hour days that's $126 a day and $630 a week.

Maybe I should just buy CoD Elite.


All pre tax/deductions.

I make around 16.70 hr and work a 40hr week. I make near 700 a week and take home 435. In tax/deduction last year I lost 13k.

I've spent well over 100 hours in Black Ops 2 for $60, and I plan to spend many more. I also plan to buy the DLC because it adds more variety to what I already enjoy.

Average movie ticket price is $9-10 for about 2 hours of entertainment. Going bowling will cost you $10 for about an hour. Concert tickets...$20-40 for 3 hours or so...and that's for a cheap band.

Even with tacking on every map pack (say another $60)...100+ hours for $120. I'm not really sure how people can say the game is expensive compared to other forms of entertainment, even if you only clocked 10 hours total in the game.

And those who claim the game is garbage -- why didn't you rent before buying? If you bought it without knowing what to expect, that's your fault. If you didn't buy the game, why are you here complaining about something you have no involvement with?

Same. Me getting this current job was simply due to me already working here for 2 years as a soldier & then transitioned to contractor.

if I actually tried in school I can only imagine how much I would be making with this current job.
