That is fucking terrible. 25k is $2,083.33 per month. After taxes take home is 1700, or $850 every two weeks. $2083/month / 4 weeks = $520.75/week. $520.75 / 50 hours = $10.42/hour. Just the fact that such a terrible paying job exists in Brooklyn shows how terrible the job market is for attorneys. Granted this listing is on the low end of shit law jobs but there are plenty of these gems floating around out there. I have teenage cooks that flunked out of high school making more than these guys do, plus free food from the restaurant. Taking into account the daily food stipend, my guys make $12 per hour. The fact remains that spending over 100k, 3.5 yrs in law school and bar exam process to make this much starting off is an insult. And the reality is that THIS JOB WILL BE TAKEN BY SOME DESPERATE TTTT hero.
For the love of god avoid law school like the plague.
