    New York City Sanitation Worker or Police Officer?
    I saw a stat recently that NYC sanitation workers get paid more than NYC police officers (based on 2007 data).

    Sanitation:
    Max Base Pay: $57,392
    Truck Bonus: $10,962
    Total Salary: $68,354 for NYC sanitation workers who operate the trucks

    Police Officer:
    Base Salary: $59,588 for NYC police officers with 5.5 years on the job


    I am not trying to discredit one or the other, but if your a NYC police office putting your life on the line each day, your gotta be at least thinking about switching to sanitation.

    They also likely make more than the Co-Pilot of the Airbus (Flight 1549) that landed in the Hudson river. Sullenberger makes a lot more because he has tons of seniority/longevity with the airline; but new pilots today are paid very little.

    I think I would rather be a cop.

    I don't begrudge anyone that makes good money. There's usually a good reason for it.

    Anyone that is physically able to be a cop would probably rather be a cop than a sanitation worker

    Have you *seen* any street in NYC on trash night? Those sanitation workers deserve every penny. Not that cops don't! But they probably are in equally dangerous jobs.

    I agree with Loxly.

    Remember, they also often have to deal with rats.

    And the sanitation workers are usually working at night, in not so nice neighborhoods where they are probably on very good terms with the NYPD!

    Except they land up in different places. Jail or County dump?

    Neither!

    How about a nice career as an Afilliate Marketer?

    As an affiliate marketer, you may have to deal with thieves, crooks, rats, parasites, and other garbages, but at least you can work from your laptop from almost any corner of the planet, and you don't have to get dirty or probably get shot, while earning your money...

    And btw, as an affiliate marketer, there is no preset limit as to how much you can earn a year, as long as you know when to hold some of your sites...

    As well as no limit to how little you can earn!

    Good question!

    Depending on a few factors, you can easily earn less than in a year, if you have all of your eggs in one basket, and still think that previous earning can't go down, just because you tried something new that may look better, while at the sametime, you stopped doing was you was doing before...

    This business is not for everybody that think it's that easy...

    knowledge and experience may and should come later, but unless one don't have the time, or the money needed as a newbie to start on this business, no one can honestly and ethically should believe that they can make real long lasting revenue on this...

    Even here you can search for some veterans that have posted that they're not longer making what they used to...

    So once again about how little you can earn: "Only You, Can Decide", what's the minimum you're comfortable with before you throw in the towel, or switch strategy...

    One of the best thing about this business is that you're the only one in control of who would you want to work (not for) with, and that with just a few clicks of the mouse, there can be the difference between how nuch or how little you can earn a year...
