#Jessica on Sep 18, 2017 :
#tawanrin You just admit that you're useless af that's why you can't get that much paid.
I'm Taiwanese in Kaohsiung, and I get 50K.
#tawanrin on Aug 11, 2017 :
Average Monthly Net Salary can't be true, they make a lot less than 60k, not even more than 30k,

People in Kaohsiung are bullshit.

2 BR south of FE21 in a really nice building with all service charges included for 12000NT.
Internet runs 1000NT and utilities total $1000NT in the winter and AVERAGE $3500NT in the summer (sometimes as high as $4500NT when it gets really hot.)
I pay between $7000NT and $9500NT.
(Swimming pool, trash service, water service, security, stand-up shower and bathtub, fully furnished, washer, balcony)
