3 News: What is your personal imcome...

, posted: 13-Sep-2012 17:37

3 News is running an survey on their website, this question is interesting, strikes me as rather weighted towards the upper classes.  That, or maybe I'm just horribly abused, overworked and underpaid by my boss (being self employed) and everybody else in the country is far better off than I.  Actually.  That's entirely possible.

Don't have to be upper class to earn big dollars, ask your local drug dealer.

It seems that TV3 has an target audience issue.....

I'm clearly not earning enough....Frown

I would thing 'Over 150,000' would be enough as the high income bracket.

And we all thought TV3 were hard up.... Maybe they simply based this on there own internal pay-scales. (We just get average pay right?)

Now where do I apply

Considering that the average income in NZ is something like $60k, I would say there will be a lot of use of the first two radio buttons.

You never know, it might be important for them to know the difference between the $120k earners and the $130k earners!

(I just filled in a survey where the salary question topped out at $80k)

Hmm, after tax income on a $500,000 salary is $6,579 per week. Nice

Anyone clicking 500k+ automatically gets contacted by a tax accountant to so they can maximise avoidance

I laugh (and cry) when the "average Auckland" salary survey results come out... 99% of the time, the average Auckland salary is around $70k - I dont know anyone who earns that and Im suppose to be in a "well to do" area of Auckland (what Im doing here I dont know).

I think the surveyors only visit Newmarket/Ponsonby/Remuera.....

That TV3 survey fits in with that nicely.

Someone is out of touch with that survey. Considering tv3 is more targeted to younger viewers, the survey has been poorly done, and I have never seen it done like that. Normally these surveys top out at over $120k or similar. They are going to get many people ticking over 500k for a joke. They needed far more options under 100k too.
