Earnings Expectation vs. Reality 2022

Article Image

How much do you expect to earn at your peak? And are you being realistic?

We asked 3,000 18-24 year olds from all over the UK and Ireland the maximum they expect to earn in their lifetimes and compared their answers with the annual earnings for full-time employees.

The bad news is most people will never earn as much as they think. See our infographic below to see how the different regions and countries compare.
