Can you buy a nice house for $200K in the USA ? :)

It depends on where in the US. In New York City or San Francisco, definitely not. In Arizona or Las Vegas, yes (but it’s 110 degrees in the summer!). In Detroit, you can get houses for $7000, less than the price of a car (but there’s crime and snow in the winter).

I live in Los Angeles, where it is pretty expensive (3 bedroom house ~ $400,000-$600,000). My salary as a full time developer ($110,000/year) is a little above average for the industry ($94,000 is the average in Los Angeles), while the general population is about $48,000/year.

Become a digital freelancer, so to speak, and set your own rules. If you are good and truly delve into the professional world, you can charge US$65 per hour, making up to 3K per week.

Well, for example, Kriesi earns almost half of that amount A MONTH , if I’m not wrong.

yeah! probably…. but why $6000 per year then? I bet working at McDonalds is more rewarding than being a programmer in that case

In Lithuania minimal salary a year is about 3500 dollars and average about 8500 dollars. Of course, for programmers it’s probably bigger, but don’t know how much…

Wow,

I’m freelancing for so long now, I did not have a clue until i read the discussion.

Seems in South Africa it’s $2000 to $4000 for a qualified and experienced php/Java programmer but it can go up to $6k or $8K if you’re surname is Wozniak. That’s per month.

At the rate that companies are phoning me to get stuff fixed and sorted they should probably pay a little more and demand better a quality workforce.

Searching for incomes of WordPress developers amongst the digital agencies, everyone is paying peanuts and the requirement is “Experience in customizing WordPress themes”.

Guess where they get their stuff.
