The newest trend on Twitter? Sharing your first salary. You heard that right. In a country with honestly no employer following the minimum wage standard set by the government, this gets pretty damn interesting.
Let’s see what people have to say.
This is pretty wholesome, tbh
#myfirstsalary was Rs.500 from an Architect back in 2001, i remember when my mother raise her hands to ALLAH and says, ALLAH ismain bht barkat daalay, (Maa ki dua azeem salary hai).

And this is quite a flex
I started working as labor at a Paint Shop in Shikarpur on a monthly salary of Rs.600/- in 2004.

Was everyone working in 7th grade? I feel like an underachiever.
#myfirstsalary was PKR. 600/- when I did radio shows for AIOU. One show 300 rupees. And that day I did 2 shows at one day. I was in Grade 7 and it was 2005.
There have many ups n downs since then.
These days fall in the "downs" category though🤕 pic.twitter.com/zX5xZYGUnz

Okay, big jump, I know. I’m SHOOK.
I joined #BKTEF with a salary of 7500 PKR (2008) , it was not mere a job but a mission for me, to sing the songs of peace #BachaKhan taught through his non-violent struggle. It was an opportunity to work for our downtrodden ppl & unlearn stereotypes and prejudices #myfirstsalary

Giving your entire salary for your brother’s tuition? Some people have the purest hearts out there.

Pat on the back to all these people who have a job but let’s be honest, it’s seriously hard to get one.
