    And US debt loads/Tuition too.
    Residency in Canada also pay's more from my experience. I see Several Med students get through 7-8 years of school, and residency with less than $250,000 in debt (although I've seen higher in some locations)
    A 1st yr Residency Student will make in the $50k range in their 1st year, and it'll increase year over year.
    I also dont see too many Doctors letting their education financing actually being paid over 20 yrs like this image would state. I understands its to prove a point, but its not the reality.

    Teachers are also some of the worst money managers I've seen in my career (generally speaking). But on the other side, Doctors can be terrible with money too. The benefit of becoming a doctor is that you usually come out of university fully employed, where a teacher wont. They usually become a supply teacher for several years making very little, and if they can get a job then they start making a fair salary.

    This just based on what I see financing both of these professions on a daily basis for the last 15 years all across Canada.

    Canadian teachers can afford to be bad with their money because they are given waaaaay too much of it. :)

    I would guess if this chart was done with Canadian salaries teachers would be much further ahead.

    Not from the salaries I've seen.
    A fulltime teachers salary is usually in the 60-70k range, and thats a higher end salary.

    Doctors have it rough. I daily see internal job postings for family. emergency and specialists. Most family positions start at 150k for 37.5 hours + additional on call. Specialist positions start at 250k to 350k + additional for on call. I don't know how they get by to be honest.

    Teachers top out at 70k with their masters and a lot of time put in.

    You clearly don't have one person in your life who is a teacher. The time and effort it takes to actually get permanent status here in Nova Scotia is absolutely insane. Most teachers here spend 5-10 years just trying to get to a position where they have full-time employment, not to mention all the extra time they put in before and after school to demonstrate their desire to actually go anywhere in that profession.

    You couldn't pay me enough to babysit 25-35 kids all day for 8 months, yet we pay teachers shit to not only ensure our kids are safe but to teach them life skills.

    I'd like to see how those "lifetime hours worked" are calculated. Assuming it's just by time spent in an actual classroom? Not the time spent marking papers or test, building lesson plans, supporting students outside of school hours, etc. Sure, they have summers off and not all teachers are as dedicated as some, but the same can be said for Doctors - some who end up taking 3/5 days off a week toward the end of their careers and caring as much about their patients as they do a rock.

    I bet everyone on here can think back to a teacher who left a lasting impact on your life. I can think of a few.

    Saw a list of salaries printed in Frank magazine - 6 figures for glorified baby sitting seems excessive.

    I can't see that unless they are very high up in the board. Glorified baby sitting? I don't think you could be any more ignorant to what teachers deal with.

    Unionized Government employees are killing the Country (Provinces) ....Everyone says "Good for Them" .... Good for Them until you clue into the fact that the money doesn't fall out of the sky and is part of the reason taxes in this country are insanely high.

    The $100,000 club: Who’s really making big money these days

    Canada’s new upper class: firefighters, police officers, teachers


    "In Canada, the good life no longer belongs only to those who graduated from competitive professional programs, or built their own businesses, or came into family money. It now belongs to those who take stable and well-protected government jobs. But, as in Europe, where bloated public sector payrolls have brought down governments, in Canada, too, these trends are coming home to roost."

    It's because the private sector isn't keeping up with the cost of living and keeping salaries low. Stop complaining about other people making too much and complain about you making too little.

    Its far easier to complain about the financial situation of others than it is to improve your own. Its none of my business what stang or anyone else makes. Can't imagine getting bent out of shape over the salaries of jobs I am not even remotely qualified for.
