#Lauren white on Jan 22, 2018 :
Greg, my wage is pretty much around 80k to 90k in Taoyuan.
Nothing wrong here.
#Greg on Oct 20, 2017 :
My apologies 90000 not 900000. 90,000 NT dollars is way too high of an average. It is rather impossible.
#Greg on Oct 20, 2017 :
There are a lot of people who live in Taoyuan and do not make that much money. It is expensive to live here but most people do not work at job that pays around 900000 NT dollars. That is super-inflated number that most people here in Taiwan only wish to make. There are people here who inflate the income ratio, but they are only a small percentage of the population.
