Morons and Jackasses, oh my - New comment on Microsoft FY07Q2 Results

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Microsoft FY07Q2 Results":

Many U.S. positions are being replaced (not one-for-one, but fading out of the U.S. and reappearing overseas) by engineers in India who have 6-8 yrs of university education and will work for half the U.S. salary...and be grateful for it!

Half a decent US salary goes a LONG way in India, moron. Let's say a decent US salary is $60,000. On $30,000, you could live like a KING in India.

Try comparing apples to apples next time jackass.

(You’ve got a point, does it need to be decorated with insults?)


  • "On $30,000, you could live like a KING in India."

    This is pretty inaccurate. Perhaps you could live like a KING in one of the rural areas, but I doubt it even then.

    Indian income tax is a flat 30% after the first Rs. 150,000, so that $30,000 results in a net salary of only $21,000. Tiny apartments in Hyderabad sell for $100K+, larger ones approach or exceed $200K+, and mortgage rates range between 9.5%-11%.
