We need to fill 2 posts so I was looking at typical salaries and cam across this article.
Are any of you software developers? When i looked at this article I thought the median and average salaries are still low to be ranked best in the world. Like $35k is not even R500 000, which is not much for a skilled person. Maybe it is for a young person starting off, and the many young people in IT pull the mean and median down. But then i compared these salaries to other professions:

IT is actually low paid. Professional people earn at least double what IT people get.
Does that mean unless you are a Bill Gates or something IT is not really a well paying job?
Eh, this shows them to be among the worst paid in the world.
In absolute dollar terms they come out middle. But when converted to cost of living and purchasing power them come out on top. The standard of living is very good here, if you earn enough to isolate yourself from blacks. That is africa in a nutshell: beautiful scenery, water, soil, weather, vast riches in terms of resources, the richest place in the world where decent men can succeed. Just shame about the darkies. they are a spanner in the works.
If you take tax into account they aren't the best paid.
In SA that would put them in the high end tax bracket. In the US it would be the low end.
If $35k is enough to isolate you from blacks and live well in SA, then maybe I should go and live there for a while. Is it easy for foreigners to get residency and gun licences?
Looking at the figures again, UK salaries seem to have really taken a nose dive in the last 10-15 years.
Yep, that's crap money.
I've been paid more in an unskilled job and that was over a decade ago.
Given that average age of developers is in their 20s they say, 35k is a good starting salary and will get you a place in a security estate. For an experienced professional, salary should be double that. But I don't know what IT salaries are.
Easy for nonwhite foreigners. Very difficult for whites.
I was reading an article on tax comparing usa and sa. High income earners here pay tax in the high 20%, just like the usa, although the top bracket is 44%. The big difference is that in sa 800 000 people (white) pay 2/3 of all tax. And 3.3 million pay 99% of all tax for 57 million people. Well 7 million people and 50 million nonpeople darkies.
Arguably in the USA you get far more bang for your tax money. Ours is largely pilfered by darkies and more than 1/3 of the nation gets handouts (darkies). 87 % (darkies) pay no tax at all.
In europe they pay over 40%. A couple moving back to sa from Holland told me they pay 60% tax there. They movedon't there due to crime but now in Holland with all the darkies and rapefugees they can't leave anything and it not be stolen. So may as well be back in sa with less tax, less pc and lower cost of living.

Yes, so a white man looking to be around attractive women should go live amongst a bunch of steatopygian Hottentots ...
