It amazes me sometimes when I see people giving testimony in church and other gatherings of how they finally got a job after years of sitting idle and searching endlessly. When I try to figure out what this lucrative job has to offer, I begin to hear things like my daily is 25k, my salary is on commission, my salary is 40k monthly.
Jesus! For real 🤔 . How on earth can one earn such a miserable amount of money and call it salary?
In an economy where fuel is N147/literature and exchange rate is $390 to 1 Naira. Isn't this weird?
Isn't it high time for people to understand that there is dignity in labour?
Data released by Stutern sometime ago seem unbelievable but hey, it's the harsh reality of how unappreciated hard work is in Nigeria. I know what my friends earn, I know what I earn. If I was to ask you guys to start posting how much you earn, I'd most likely get comments from those that earn the big bucks which is just fine ☺. Many of us will rather not comment as the figure will most likely come below the illusion the world has created for herself. Our neighbors, our GFs and BFs, Our Parents, Friends and Family all think we are big shots, which we indeed are, our payslip just isn't giving us much credit cheesy
If you're reading this, there is a 7/10 chance that you are on the look out for another job, possibly because you want to earn more. More Salary 🙃. Believe me when I say you most likely wouldn't get paid your true worth unless you get real lucky.
If you are in your early twenties, please pick up that 50 - 70K job. It's okay you may not want to tell your friends how much you earn, they too may be in the same situation. Congratulations if your salary is in millions smiley, please don't make the mistake of looking down on those that earn thousands unless you're going to admire their shoe, don't make their job and life anymore difficult in the Office as you never know what tomorrow.
To every young man and woman out there that is trying to make a living, don't loose hope. Your salary is a means to an end, not the end in itself. Let your happiness be priority over your pay check. Your salary isn't the end in itself, your salary is the means to the end.
Your salary is disgraceful, but with that disgraceful salary you can plan a better future for yourself. No matter how little or much you earn, don't live from hand to mouth, let that meagre pay make a difference
