    $8000/month. Americans will have the jobs

    To fight H1-B visas, an American said "working for $9000/month will be pain, but we will have the jobs".

    No alcohol. No Las Vegas, no hollywood, buy less sporting event tickets (NFL, NHL, basketball etc..), 1 or 2 cars per house/family, less fuel wastage, less international vacations (seeing Taj Mahal etc..) will be good for Make America Great Again (MAGA)

    I am saying people can live a low life for 5 to 7 years so that they have good jobs and experiences for next 20 to 30 years. You read my other post.

    They keep saying one man has $40 billion when other people live on $5000/month or......

    Well , I am retired now and a proud tax scofflaw myself . After my first 8 years in the Army or so every normal experience after that was also just a learning experience . I finally arrived at what I was meant to be . An old retired Grandpa .

    My mind must be gone because I almost cannot imagine working for $90K, having long ago done 5x that. It is a weird thing to be around large sums such as the hundreds of millions of other people's dollars I have managed on client projects. You become inured to the enormity of such sums such that a $100K salary seems not quite meager, but definitely nothing about which to write home.

    The mind is a very strange place.

    when managers, MBAs etc.. get $25,000/month or $100,000/month, you and me pay $25 for $20 product. The cost goes up.

    I got $200 from online surveys and in one of the survey I told them, if you/company give me money, company will get sales. It means if I have $2000, I cannot buy a $20,000 car.

    I have worked for those wages too . Much harder than on line but it was a long time ago , probably over 35 years ago . I could make my house payment off of it with what I made in one week. My Grandmother always told me if it cost more than that you cannot afford it .

    If I had to work for less than 12.00 an hour I would just quit and make whiskey instead . I can probably get 20.00 for a quart .

    Being H-1B related, they're probably tech jobs, so around $108,000 per year doesn't seem to be far from the mark.
