Agree, have they never heard of alphabetical order?

Re: is your salary fair ? Consider this:

Well, if that's the case, it's certainly not from French.

By the way, and I know my German is pretty atrocious, but the -in suffix denotes a female, doesn't it? I see quite a few professions where the default is this option (Floristin, Pferdpflegerin, Modedesignerin etc). Nice to see that linguistic sexism is alive and well! (Although I'm wondering why someone who looks after a horse is automatically judged to be a women, whereas a "Tierpfleger" in general is a man).

Sorry, that wasn't really about salary, but I don't read a lot of German, so it's interesting.

Re: is your salary fair ? Consider this:

I resent the fact that a butcher makes 3850, while a baker makes 5313. I would say a butcher is generally more skillful (on the high street) as well as the work being dirtier and tougher. Poor buggers.

Baker gets up at 3am every day he wants to produce bread.

What I resent is the fact that some of the hardest jobs with the worst conditions are the worst paid. My sister was a "Bereiter" and she worked more like 56 hours a week, with only one day off.

And yes, I really hope that this puts things in perspective for some of the spoilt people who think that anything below a hundred grand is impossible to live on. This is not Disneyland, you know.

not sure why people resent a butcher getting paid less than a baker, or someone getting paid low amounts for a job with long hours. unless these people are slaves, they can simply change jobs.

I frankly do not resent this at all. It is called "supply and demand". Bereiter is somebody working with horses all day. I know a lot of people who actually SPEND money to ride horses instead of getting paid. So I can imagine that there will be enough people willing to do their dreamjob for relatively little money...

Although butcher gets less, somone still pockets the money given horrendous meat prices and loaf of bread costs only CHF2.

Details, details, details:

The salary given for the baker is the one for a master craftsman ("mit Meisterdiplom) so he or she is more experienced, usually older and has additional training and passed the relevant exams (he could teach his trade to others officially).

The salary for the butcher is for someone freshly out of the apprenticeship ("ab erstem Berufsjahr")

Re: is your salary fair ? Consider this:

What about a pilot, who has the lives of many in their hands, "only" getting around 10k per month?
The same as a medium level accountant, and less than many of the first-timers on here, asking if they are earning enough..
