When I say a CA makes 37-38K, I mean a CA student who completed is 3 years (BAA) and is ready to write the UFE (exam to become a CA). Technically, a CA as is title which implies passing the UFE and having 2 years of experience. So once a CA, you're probably looking at 50K, but that's after 6 years, 3 years for your BAA, 1 more for the CA program to be able to write the UFE + 2 years of working experience.
The CA route is particular and different then other professional fields.
Yeah that's pure exploitation !
In my field of engineering peoples are starting to 55 000 $ a year on average in a private company.
From the earlier debate I also think engineering is harder than becoming a CA and for some engineering fields it isn't even close (I look at you electrical engineering and aerospace engineering).
