You paying taxes working in the USA is something everyone does.Consider it a payment just to live in the richest place in the world and the most powerful too.
Now the zombielike US thief government is brazenly punishing and scamming all of the aforementioned foreigner in their own motherland outrageously for not declaring/reporting their own bank accounts from their motherland with the least punishment of whopping 10,000 US dollar for each of their motherland bank account to the extent of confiscating half of their life savings outrageously and inhumanely.
Even worse, instead of standing with their people, their respective inhumane government from their own motherland supports the zombielike US thief government to not only freeze their own bank accounts but also rob ten of thousand of US dollar from their accounts outrageously in their own motherland.
The greatest tragedy for the humankind is happening now under the manipulation of the US thief government, thanks for all of the hypocrite countries who made it happen now by supporting the US thief government against their own blood brother and blood sister and bringing the worse future without justice for their respective future descendants.
The wealth of the people is as much as the same as the wealth of the country but allowing the zombielike US thief government to rob the wealth of your people is the greatest treason against the holy blood of your own that you share with your people.
The greatest injustice inflicted to the aforementioned foreigner by the zombielike US thief government is unforgivable until the day the US thief government is toppled.
It's time for all countries to be united to protect the interest of the citizen of their own respective country by destroying the zombielike US thief government by banning the most untrustworthy US dollar which is good for nothing but dragging the rest of the world for getting worse and worse with the most untrustworthy US dollar printer which overprints the most untrustworthy US dollar paper without any accountability to the extent of creating the most unsustainable debt of over 30 trillions US dollar for the most immoral US thief government until so far.
The salary will be 83-86K gross + bonuses.
I’m rather cheap person and even here in Japan I was saving 50% of my salary. In Switzerland it will be difficult.
I was planning to spend:
1,6K living costs (food, spending, weekly cycling / hiking trips)
What are your thoughts of that? Is is possible to life well like that? Or should I prepare that I will not be able to save as much?
I'm considering applying for a job in either of these 2, but I'm honestly finding it difficult to "translate" my current income in Central Europe to the salaries and costs of living in Switzerland. I'm earning around 3400 EUR per month (net) here which is a pretty good salary, around 3x times the local net salary where I live (Bratislava).
Looking on Glassdoor and other sites I see salaries ranging between 110 - 170 000 CHF/year including bonus, for a position I would be looking at, but I'm guessing this is gross? Considering that, do you think I would be better or worse off in Zurich or Geneva vs. Bratislava?
How to get a job as a simple worker without the need for language in Zurich and Switzerland?
Nothing can be found at job sites .
The comment about electricity prices is absolute bs. For a family of 3 living in an apartment the average price of electricity (with everything meaning you also cook with electricity) is 1500 Franken A YEAR.
The average rents are very accurate here so the whole „you need 8k to rent an apartment“ ist absolute horseshit
Also the comment about Morocco is also bullshit. Morocco is a VERY poor country. They’re also in a civil war. Just go look at Casablanca here on Numbeo and see how little you earn there.
You’re alternatives to Switzerland in the same ballpark are Singapore and Norway.
I am thinking of moving to Zurich. My plan is to save around 5000 to 6000chf each month for having a decent living. Single person looking for a 2 bedroom apartment near the city center. Do you believe that it's enough? Is it better to get a 2 bedroom apartment near the city center or something that is outside? I was thinking of a 30min commute to Waffenplatzstrasse. Any idea on house prices?
Thanks in advance!
What is the wage of a Python developer, and is this possible to live "more than normal" with that wage in Zurich or outside from the city (20-50 km)?
I want to ask what is the minimum wage in Zurich and I wanted to ask how easy it is to find a job as a bus driver?
and about wages?
