Quite okay (Germany)
2014-09-23 01:51
quite okay lel. Thats an high paid job in germany.
2014-09-23 02:06
agree. average in germany is about 2300€/month, there are still 40% of the people in germany who get less. 6000$ is 4500€ - i dont know many people that earn that amount of money in germany, even here in hamburg where the salary is high.
2014-09-23 02:23
You do now capsl0ck :-D First beer is on me in Hamburg

Lol in Slovakia we have average of 450€/month :D I am 19, studying, working and I am not able to earn more than 250€ per month -> I want to get out of this focking country. Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark anything else.
2014-09-23 14:03
If that's your goal and you work on it you'll be able to do so. :)
2014-09-23 14:12
the issue is, if u want to live somewhere in germany where something is going on (berlin/hamburg/munich) its actually hard to afford living if u dont have a high paid job. i live on 15 square-metres, i pay 450€/month for in a shared flat. once u want ur own flat here, u will need that high salary like in hamburg. cold-rental for 120qm is somewhere about 1200€ and more, u will have to pay 5000€ first in order to pay the bail. trust me, its not cheap in germany. i'm thinking about moving back to saxony after i finshed my studies here. there i paid 200€ for 25 squaremetres in the middle of the "kiez" (party-area) in saxony, average salary is less than in most german federal states, therefore a flat, a beer, a concert does cost less than the half of in hamburg.
2014-09-23 15:04
WTF that's even less than what I make in Guatemala. I get about $1,000 a month.
2014-09-23 17:12

2014-09-23 15:31
brutto or netto?
2014-09-23 17:49
german avg salary is pretty low compared to us, but ur prizes are cheaper so u get more for ur Money i think.
2014-10-04 14:09
If you don't have any high aims, then yeah, it's a quite okay salary.
2014-09-23 02:32
he didnt ask about aims, the question was if this salary is good in our country and compared to the average it is, so you missunderstood it
2014-09-23 02:42
Are you happy now? :') I stated my opinion.
2014-09-23 02:50
900 euro is fine on Germany lel and they are proud of jobs paid like shit
2014-09-23 11:50
nope even higher payed trainees get 900
2014-09-23 12:28
2000 net is germanys average btw

2014-09-23 18:20
4500 EUROS IN PORTUGAL? Man, in Portugal with 4500 you are a very very rich man. Where the minimum salary(and the average) is about 485 euros. A teacher, a nurse, a engineer earn about 1000 euros (and are considered good payed people). In Portugal just the very good doctors, business man, and politicians earn that money.
2014-09-23 16:31
Well, it depends on what you call "good". If you want to be stuck with a "regular job" all your life then 4000€ in Germany of course is fine money. I don't understand how so many people are happy with that though. I have higher goals even though I'm still far from it as I just graduated from high school.
2014-09-23 16:40
If you live in a country full of corruption, you have to rephrase that. For example. We have a LOT of great politicians, managers and whatnot, who actually are "good" and can achieve something. But in order to do so, they cant rely only on their skills. They need a lot of connections. knowledge and skills dont get you up there on their own - it depends on the subject though -, but they sure do help.
2014-09-23 17:06
Then you would have to leave the country. It all depends on your priorities.
2014-09-23 17:09
What in your opinion is not a "regular job" ?
2014-09-23 21:37
Not being a slave all your life.
2014-09-23 21:41
Dude I agree with you that it is essential to have high goals in life but if you earn like 4000e per month then it is a great salary.(except Switz, Norway etc.) and can't be complained about. :) I don't want to bring you down but after graduation everyone feels like a god and then real life strikes back. What did you graduate in ? :)
2014-09-23 21:56
4000€ is a normal life. In Poland it is obviously a lot more money but still. You should never be happy with something and always fight for more. I graduated from a regular high school. Hoping to start at university next April to get my BBA.
2014-09-23 21:59
aaa I though you already went through uni. :) 'You should never be happy with something and always fight for more.' ---> true GL at university. :)

meet the greeks, living with 300 euro salary per month :))
2014-09-23 08:07
2014-09-23 09:57
That's probably the official number. Greek's are known to evade taxes
2014-09-23 10:26
how taxes affect the salary from your work, please think twice before posting.
2014-09-23 10:37
trolling? a greek person asking how taxes affect the salary you earn is quite ironic and indicates that, true to the popular stereotype, no one pays tax in greece. fyi, in most developed, democratic european countries that are fiscally concious the population pays income tax on their salary. hence, the income tax you pay is deducted from the salary you earn and therefore greatly influences the amount you take home. please think twice before deciding not to pay your taxes and then exhibiting your fiscal infidelities in the public domain.
2014-09-23 10:52
300 euros is the minimum salary payed including taxes, wtf is wrong with u ppl. Plus, dont think you are better than we are. You are just incredibly lucky to live in a country which controling the world economy and staff.Dont reply to me like i came from mars or like we are criminals. Ppl like u destroying wordl stability every fucking second. Open books, ready history even google it. Sit and learn who are in charge of the biggest companies worldwide and dont be surprised if a greek is among them. Just stop being rude and stop chewing every single fucking word goverments gives you. People should help each other not critisise them. You are just a small gear in the system's engine, dont ever forget that. At least show some respect to the greek people fighting for their survival under the worst circumstances paying the whole shit economy control OF JUST A FEW IDIOTS CALLING THEMSELVES GOVERMENT. Dont put us all in the same position, we and all of you are just soldiers in a chess played by them fuckers. Cheers, come in greece sometime ill be happy to eat a souvlaki with ya mate. Nothing personal :)
2014-09-23 11:45
You know that some people from greece get pension from people who are already dead... I was in Greece and the people there are in average richer than portugal or spain people. But your government have lots of liabilities because people get lots of money from already dead person, the system isn't the best, lot of unpaid taxes, etc..
2014-09-23 22:08

LOL. In my country people gets way more than you do in 1 month just for doing nothing. Its called Social support, free money every month :D
2014-09-23 08:31
LOL, you are so damn clueless. That ain't no free, it had to be taken away someone in the first place, don't you think young boy?
2014-09-23 08:51
Finland merkkis 
Yeah they take it from people who actually works... (taxes) But to those lazy ass son-of-a-bitches its free youngmoney cashmoney.
2014-09-23 09:05
The thing is, what they don't know is that they would be better off if that stuff didn't exist. The money that is being taken away from people would then certainly be spent in a more productive way and thus, at the end of the day everybody would be happier, including those who now believe actually benefit from the system. No, they don't.
2014-09-23 09:14
Finland merkkis 
Well the system works if you for example hurt yourself and can't work anymore. There is always just people who wants to use the system wrongly. If they take the lowest paid job in Finland they actually get less money than without working, so there is the issue.
2014-09-23 09:18
"Well the system works if (...)" No, it doesn't. Tom G. Palmer - "After the Welfare State". That's good for starters.

I don't argue from that position. I rather believe that e.g. agorism is something worth looking into.
2014-10-05 01:50
yep same in nl
2014-09-23 11:26
but that problem exists in every country with that social-support-system imo the problem is about those low-paid jobs not the high social support...some people have also to take 2 jobs to make a living
2014-09-23 13:57
How much do they get each month?
2014-09-23 20:18

2014-10-04 13:54
nah, as a student. I am fine with 800€/month
2014-10-04 23:28
Yeah, you can survive, you can't "live" with that little money.
2014-10-05 00:34

Maybe, but not my fault that some retard ppl wanna live with social support instead of working and getting 3000€/month (atleast 2500)
2014-10-05 11:50
You give way too much, you should lower it to force people to work at least. Here, you don't get that much, you can barely survive with what the gov gives you.

Then explain me why they get like 1500€/month just for doing nothing? Free for them, Not free for who pays taxes.
2014-09-23 09:24
Rofl. You can't opt-out from the system, you pay taxes no matter what are the choices that you make in life. Even if you choose to live in some outskirts of civilisation and grow everything by yourself, and eat only that, you then gotta use some fossil fuels to heat up yourself during the winter, and the price of that is quite likely to be affected by the government policies. Even if you have a state recognised job and pay income tax, in Europe that's actually a tiny fraction of what you actually pay, as the other taxes, including sales tax, tax on fuel, housing, etc. overcome that by large. If you don't have access to stuff that would have been created if it wasn't for state coercion and taxation, or would otherwise be much cheaper, that's also taxation.
2014-09-23 09:34
He is talking about social support only and not working for that money = salary, which this thread is about.
2014-09-23 10:58
But you are working for that money. If you are 6 and get 10 EUR from your grandma to buy a chocolate, and you can only get X amount because of taxation, while it would be 2X if it wasn't for taxation and regulation, that X amount of chocolate that you don't get is actually a tax that you are paying to the state. As a 6 year old. Not to mention that, if it wasn't for state coercion, your grandma while burdening her budget to the same degree, would probably be able to give you more than that 10 EUR. Do you get it now?
2014-09-23 17:59
Lol. He said IF he isn't working. IF the said person is unemployed. Or has injured himself so he can't work. HE is NOT working for that money, others are. But for him it's FREE Do YOU get it now?
2014-09-23 18:40
No, it's not. A person who doesn't work still pays shit load of taxes, in fact, the vast majority of them. Like sales tax, aka VAT. If you look at governments income statistics in Europe, you would find out that income taxes doesn't make up even 30% of what is being taken away from people. And even if it was 100%, thats not the whole picture yet either. Let's say from tomorrow on you increase the income taxes in the bakery sector by 100%. Will the price of bread increase? Who pays for the bread? Thus, who effectively will be paying for that increase? It's not the bakers, it's their customers. It doesn't matter whom you tax or how you propagandise it all. EVERYBODY at the end of the day pays a price for it, to more or less the same degree.
2014-09-23 19:01
No. You're looking into this in a too big perspective. The topic is if the person that gets the social support WORKS for his mone = NO he doesn't. IE it's FREE. That has NOTHING to do if he pays any other taxes or not. It's simply a question if he is working for the money he recieves in SocialSupport. If he later buys food (which we assume, we don't even know that) that is a whole other question. So let's assume he doesn't buy any food or anything (he gets food from his friend or whatever) is the money then free (according to you? See?
2014-09-23 20:06
I understand your perspective. But it's flawed if you put it like that, you can just cut off some small portion of what the situation is like and derive facts from it. There's nothing free on this world except air and seawater, everything else is scarce. That's the base that you should start from. He had been working for that money for the whole life anyway, buying less chocolate for his pocket money than he could as a child (because of taxation and other forms of state coercion that made production and sale of chocolate less efficient, hence, the chocolate itself far less affordable) and in general having far less STUFF that he could use than he would if it wasn't for the state coercion. That's the price that that person pays for the system being there, as you simply can't opt-out. If you end up with a conclusion that someone does in fact get something for free (however wrong or not you might be about it), which is possible however extremely unlikely because of the very nature of the state and the fact that economy makes up a communicating vases system, and that's not air or seawater, that means that somebody had to deliver it there somehow in the first place. If it wasn't delivered voluntary, the word that you looking for to describe that good is not 'free', it's 'stolen'. Either way, your reasoning is flawed/incomplete. >> "So let's assume he doesn't buy any food or anything (he gets food from his friend or whatever) is the money then free (according to you? See?" But don't you think that the money is then worthless as it has no use?
2014-09-23 20:43
But you can surely put it to the extreme. Let's say you are one of those uncontacted peoples from Amazon judge, you never touched anything which price would be to any degree affected by the government regulations from the EU/Finland, you never touched anything that was even by a smallest portion made up from goods that came from the EU/Finland or by people who are a subject of taxation in the EU/Finland, you somehow get to a ship that goes from Brazil to Europe and transport goods, and you are being supplied with food completely voluntary by someone from the crew, you get off on the Finnish shore in Helsinki and being put into detention centre there and you are being supplied with shelter and food there that entirely come from the taxes collected in the EU/Finland. Yeah, you sort of get it all for free, and you never added up to the system before. But it's not free, it's stolen. Food and shelter are scarce, it had to be delivered by someone, who in that sense sort of ended up acting as your slave, as, again, people simply cannot choose to opt out from the system.

2014-09-23 20:49
Paying taxes is not the same as working. People who work still pay taxes. SO yes, it's kind of free money.
2014-09-25 02:36
2014-09-25 02:41
The fact that even when you are living off social welfare and still pays taxes (obviously, duh) doesn't make you a worker. So it's FREE MONEY. FREE. You might really deserve it, but there are also people that exploits this.
2014-09-25 02:45
"The fact that even when you are living off social welfare and still pays taxes (obviously, duh) doesn't make you a worker." Correct. "So it's FREE MONEY. FREE. You might really deserve it, but there are also people that exploits this." Wrong.

The money that is being taken away from people would then certainly be spent in a more productive way [...], everybody would be happier, including those who now believe actually benefit from the system. The way you use the system makes it less productive and you yourself suffer from it. Imagine you'd work, you then would be able to get even more free money later on 8)
2014-09-23 13:33
But that the nature of the beast. The very reason why the money is wasted is the fact that system exists, and not how its used. If I and you didn't take the money, it wouldn't change a bit, people would still have the money taken away and that's where the waste actually happens.

let me tell you something, if russians decide to invade you, you will be gone in 3 weeks max. I have lived in Sweden (which is basicly the same shit all over Scandinavia) and from a paycheck of 4k euros i had left 1400 for my personal expenses. Rent and taxes took over 60-65%..

Taxes aren't 50% if you deliver a tax card (which norwegians do). I pay approx. 12% of my salary as a part-time promoter for a marketing company. I work about once a week / four times a month for six hours and I get about 600-650€ after taxes are paid.
2014-09-23 19:45
Your point being? You do see the or wait at the bottom of my post? You dont know anything about how long norway would last against Russia. I do.

when you work in poland you get (1000$) i leave poland and go to uk for 2y when the biggest pay was (3000$ monthly) and when you leve uk when get 3k$ to move norway when get more than 7k$ you dont care about taxes :D
2014-09-23 13:57
So you get 6800 after taxes? Assuming you work for a legit company you pay about 45% taxes?

2014-09-23 18:09
Actually you don't have to pay taxes to Norway as a foreigner if you spend less than a 183 days in Norway in 12 month period or less than 270 days in 36 month period. And also if you spend more amount of time there, you still get 10% basic reduction in the taxes (maximum reduction of 40k NOK). So it could be totally legit. I know that some finnish welders go to Norway and work for couple of months and earn nice amount of money and come back to Finland :)

I think it's pretty decent in most countries... I'm feeling a bit sad for the Ukrainians, considering the minimum wage in Switzerland is around $4000 a month.. Unfair :-/
2014-09-23 02:10
its 4000€ not $. Quite a big difference.
2014-09-23 02:13
we don't have Euros, nor do we have a minimum wage
2014-09-23 02:29
That's right Fetzi. I didn't do my homework. The proposal got rejected the 18th May. It was just in the newspapers all over the world about Switzerland potentially having the highest minimum wages in the world. A lot of my colleagues live in Zug, Switzerland and they earn in average(converted) €12000 a month, which is pretty retarded imho. (Several go way beyond that). I'm carrying out the same task and getting paid somewhat less - the world is not a fair place :-)

that would actually be pretty hard in sweden to get into your bank, and myself wouldnt want to go around with 90-100k Swedish Cash. Also it could just stop one day and then he is fucked. You can only put in about 5-8k Skr on banks without saying where you got them from. And you cant go each day and do it , then they would start to ask too much.

Norway cago 
But the price for things is different for each country. I paid 3$ for a beer in Ukraine, while I pay 13$ in Norway. That justifies our high salery. 6k$ is under the average salery in Norway.
2014-09-23 03:34
A beer in Ukraine is like 10-12 UAH, which would translate to like 0.77-0.88 USD these days, though that's obviously affected by a huge drop the currency exchange rate had been experiencing recently. When and where did you pay 3 USD? I'm taking about pubs/restaurants, one of the major cities, and the situation from ~2 weeks ago.
2014-09-23 04:34
I was in donetsk 3 years ago.
2014-09-23 10:12
O_o where in one of the major cities did you get a beer in a restaurant for 10-12 UAH? Just curious. Here in Odessa it's double that, and double that again if you want to drink a really good beer, not some sh*t...
2014-09-24 23:34
E.g. Ternopil. Though yeah, those were the most bog standard options. I always thought that's what people mean whenever they refer to 'beer price' in pubs, the most regular positions from the menu. And those weren't some low end dives either, in fact the food they served was excellent.
2014-09-24 23:52
ah, I see now. Yeah, possible for Ternopil. Generally west and east prices are much lower than center and south. Then again, so are salaries.
2014-09-25 00:04
Also, they had this place where you could buy some hungarian langos slash pizza fusion (plus beckon on top of that), though to which everybody was referring to as a 'pizza', for 6 UAH each. 6 UAH / 0.36 EUR fast food! Plus very yummy! :D I loved it.
2014-09-25 00:02
Couple of my friends been to Lviv recently and were also amazed by those uber-low restaurant food prices. But 6 UAH is out of this world O_o. I guess I'm too used to those tourist-center prices...
2014-09-25 00:08
Odessa is prolly better anyway:
2014-10-04 13:24
lol depending on what type of venue you are at in the USA (sporting event, concert, popular bars) its easy to spend over $10 on a beer

2014-09-23 07:56
no, it is under. get your stats right, søta bror. here we have the latest stats from the official statistics bureau: and it says that the average for all employees is 41000 kr monthly in 2013. that translates to 6437 dollahss.
2014-09-23 09:46

2014-09-23 06:00
Without the context of your qualifications in terms of education, languages spoken and extra curriculars in general, it's hard to give a fair assessment. If you have a degree in engineering/law/finance (probably takes a master's of some kind unless you have the proper connections and/or luck) you could make way more if you went to the right universities. But with a random bachelor's degree from a random school, I'd be happy making that kind of money.
2014-09-23 06:06
Lol in hungary, the minimal salary is about 75.000 huf, ~250€, but there are so fucking big taxes as well, so like if u buy something, more than its 1/4 is the tax. And for your employer, it costs about 500€ to employ you (salary+tax). Best country Kappa

More like 35%.. But holy shit, 50% ?! That outrageous!
2014-09-23 09:35
Its 38 or 39% for people with low income depending on where you are living. For example AwzuuM's father makes 9000 USD, and his mom makes 4000 USD. His mom is on what we call low income and pay 38-39% in taxes. His father is in the mid-high range with his income and he most likely pays around 42% in tax. But then we have different tax deductions from mileage to work, a tax free amount up to around 9000 USD a year. So in reality our netto tax is around 35% for the low income and around 39-40% for the mid range income. While the high end will pay around 45% in total.

Your father might be paying 62 or 63% in taxes for his LAST earned crown, it doesn't mean that he pays 62% in taxes from all his income. It is also called 'Marginal tax'. He pays 38 or 39% for the first 421.000 and anything beyond that he pays topskat, which is additional 15%. So 1/5 of his income is affected by topskat, not the rest, and not all of that is affected by the marginal tax. So in effect he pays about 45% in taxes from all his income.
2014-09-23 15:10
We pay like 33-35% taxes here in romania...i earn 900$ netto - taxes i get somewhere near 600-650$ cash.
2014-09-23 09:41
i think you confused brutto and netto :D
2014-09-23 15:56
Yeah sorry

2014-09-23 09:32
Yeah but living in Norway is expensive.
2014-09-23 10:28
how is it "fucking low" when its pretty much your average salary? lol

Pretty low to average. A little more than you earn working at McDonalds in Norway.

2014-10-05 11:59
My wage per 3 month is about $9600 (~$3200/month, after taxes ofc) so it is pretty good. Btw i'm living with my parents so nothing goes to rent, food etc :D

Lol, people throwing out salaries per month and saying if it's high or low and comparing it with other countries without taking in consideration of how expensive it is to live in that said country
2014-09-23 11:02
Well...expect some primary elemental foods, like meat, bread and drinks like bear, soda, cigarettes, the prices are almost the same in whole europe. Rent an apartment bellow decent in a bad town = 200€, gasoline 1.4€/L, taxes, the same %. You cant live decent with 500€ per month in Romania, and let me remind you that there are ppl getting only 180-200€
2014-09-23 11:15
And you're replying to me because?
2014-09-23 12:03
Because you said ppl didnt consider how much money it takes to live in some country.
2014-09-23 12:18
"Almost the same" No. Just no. The diffrence is bigger than you think. Have you ever been to Finland or Norway?
2014-09-23 12:53
Is the difference that big that the salary is 3-4k in some countries vs 200-300$ in others ? No, not direct proportional.
2014-09-23 13:19
So you're saying the average salary in romania is 200$? Or what? Because those two numbers (3-4k & 200-300) doesn't have any context to them at all.

2014-09-23 16:01
6k USD would be around 22k PLN. The average per month in Poland is 2,5 - 3k PLN (700 USD) that's permonth. If you are talking 6k USD per month then it is decent! You would own the city.

4 billion is obviously exaggerated but yes, people in poor countries earn 100$ or even less. and by poor countries I meant the ones in Africa/Asia.

4 billion out of 7 billion of the planet earns less than 100$ ??? Lal

yeah but in Europe lives only 0.7 billion in Asia lives more than 4 billion and there are alot of really poor countries

Yes, 4 billion make less than 100$/day and out of them 2 billion make less than 2$/day ( 60$/month ) and out of them 1 billion make less than 1$/day ( 30$/month ) And most people on the planet can't afford to eat meat every day.

That's way above average in any country in the world.

don't forget that the prices in countries with low averages wages, are often a lot lower as well. *edit I have the following monthly expenses: - 360 euros rent/electricity/gas - 300 euros food/drugs (incl cigarettes) Meaning I already need 660 euros monthly to live in this way. I live in a 20m2 "student room". Of course I'd be able to cut down the costs of drugs and food, but still, you get the point.

During my studying in University I've made a test - "live" 1 week with as minimal amount of money spent as possible. It includes food/drink/traveling/cigarettes and other stuff. After some counting: ~ $50. Fucking 6k USD would be "afford anything I want" for me. Where did I turn in wrong direction..
2014-09-23 14:22
No rent included?
2014-09-23 14:25
No, I did "pocket expenses" test - only the most necessary: pack of cigarettes, few bottles of drinks, some food and traveling in one day for 7 times. Hell, that "live" is rough.
2014-09-23 16:10
you tried that with living on the streets?
2014-09-23 15:02
Nein. I didn't go THAT deep into this.
2014-09-23 16:11
so you found a rent for 1 dollar per day? :D so the biggest expenses you didnt count it?
2014-09-23 16:29
Here we pay a rent for next month but not previous one, so at that moment my rent was paid off already. "Our" rent is $/month but not $/day. ps: I was studying in University, so I lived in dormitory. Rent there was ~$30/month. So you can add to those expenses($50) $6-7 more, if you want.

6000 dollars is like 39 000kr which is pretty good. Average salary would be around 20k-25k kr (3000-4000 USD) I'd say for the "regular" citizen. The people who has gotten a university degree are usually the ones that makes 30k+ kr (~4600 USD) a month.
2014-09-23 14:30
It's almost what i get paid by my own company over an year, but that's just to avoid income tax. I don't really get paid that amount, i co-own the company. :d It's almost 3/4th of what me and my family earns in a month, but it's business so yeah sometimes its double but yeah it's mostly above 6-7k usd.

Even 1000USD would be nice (Spain).
2014-09-23 15:19
It's all relative. By that I mean it all comes down to your purchasing power in your country for that amount. With the OPs listed salary converted to Aussie dollars you would be earning a little over average salary here. But you would certainly not be living like a king on that wage. Most people with a few years under their belt in any decent work industry would be earning over that here.

Firstly, salary is always relative to the purchasing power. 5000 euros in Norway is less than in Finland, and a lot more in Italy as an example. Moreover, when talking about average wages is important to note whether is the "average wage" or "median wage". As average is distorted upwards because there is minimum wage, but the ones that earn millions will push the "average wage" higher. E.g Average wage in Finland is more than 3000e euros, but median is probably less. That is a pretty decent salary, its little bit less than I earn. I am in the highest 10% slot in my country
2014-09-23 16:25
how do you come up with italy? they earn less than you guys :D

I'd actually love to go to Germany, visiting my aunt and planning on staying for approx 3 months (area around Munich), but due to both aunt and uncle are employed and busy for most of the daytime, I'd like to get a job, just earn some money and kill some time, is there any kind of job you'd recommend me to do for 2-3 months? cheers :) edit: There's a language barrier tho coz I don't speak German at all, just a few words to be honest, but my English is pretty solid, even more than that I'd say.

Ukraine lancee 
Average salary in Ukraine is like 200-250$ per month, maybe 300-350$ in big cities, so 6k would be just awesome here. But depends what you're doing of course, my friend earns 3k$ after taxes as a software developer. If you've got a small grocery/alcohol shop in a good location you could earn up to 5-10k. But most of the jobs are really low-payed here. But anyway you can't compare cause money has a different value in different countries. For instance food is very cheap here, as well as alcohol and so on. A meal in some of the best cafes/restaurants in Lviv would cost you 5-10$ for example, a loaf of bread costs 0,3$, a beer 0,4-0,5$. Accomodation, electronic devices, cars cost quite much though, more than in Europe I'd say.

If it's in a decent location in a more or less big town then yea, but then again rent prices here are quite high same if you want to buy a place for the store

In Poland people who had 6k usd per month is a director or something like that, normal person have 1200 PLN per month, (1 PLN = 3 USD) so its 400 $.
2014-09-23 21:21
3 PLN = 1 USD
2014-09-24 06:09
Why are real succesfull people even posting here? Pretty sure about 75% of the people bragging here are not even half as big as they'd like to be ;)

2014-09-24 21:28
In a big mine in north sweden, we are working on moving a city atm.
2014-09-24 21:35
Kiruna? so you are basicly helping the city to collapse in favour of getting more resources. No wonder why you are getting paid well :D
2014-09-24 21:51
2014-09-24 22:24
Actually kinda of average. It's a decent pay, but most adults make that easily.
2014-09-24 12:00
Topics about money is always a popular read ;)
2014-09-24 12:52
Depends if it is before or after taxes :)
2014-09-24 18:38
If that is your gross, it would put you well above the median salary in the US. That being said, $6000 monthly is lower than the starting salary for most entry-level technology jobs :)
2014-09-24 18:46
Example for entry level technology job? :)
2014-09-24 22:46
An entry level application developer position for someone right out of college will usually get you at least $70k annually on Wall Street, and much more in Silicon Valley (Amazon, Apple both start at $90k about)

2014-09-24 22:54
Well considering the dollar has no backing value, I'd say it's probably not.

good ? :D impossible in slovakia even 1500 is impossible
2014-10-04 13:39
Assuming it's after taxes, you'll be able to live on $6k a month absolutely everywhere. Even before tax in a heavily taxed country like Denmark (up to 60%), it would still be plenty to survive on.
2014-10-04 13:50
Depends. Finns don't get so much salary but in contrast finns have quite a lot of things offered by government and healthcare costs next to nothing. But strictly moneywise, that's around 4700 euros and that is a shitload of money, at least if it's net income. Students live with approx. 600e per month. And I'd say a single person can easily live wealthy in Finland with for example 2500e per month.
