How much are the kids on Reddit making in a year? A wide range, yeah, but generally: way more than you expect and certainly more than you did at their age and in many cases more than you are right now.
At least, the ones in New York City. A thread on the social link-sharing site's New York subsection asks a pretty simple question: "NYC residents: what do you do and what is your salary?"
The first poster, who works "in Telecom Expense Management" at a $40,000 salary, ends up being toward the low end; judging by the thread most New York Redditors work in IT or software development and make a lot more than that. (The second-largest group of contributors to the thread, after people working with computers, is people going "I need a raise.")
And if the ones who share their ages are any indication, they're young, too—lots of people "just out of school" or in their 20s.
Here are the rest, arranged by "upvotes." Share yours in the comments, if you want to make people jealous/sympathetic:
