Also I dont get why everyone goes in banking/finance
Do people want the money? Because there is very few (CEOs, CFOs and thats it) in banking who are rich. Sure bankers get paid a bit (although the wages are lower in Aus compared to say, NY), but after all the hours of effort and the slogging, it's hardly worth it for a maccas wage per hour. In general, the people who work and put effort in become rich, not the ones who chase the money.
I think its a lot more than maccas hourly wage!
Im also interested to know what you define as 'rich'
