    What relevant field did you work in? I've known multiple people who have gone overseas for more than you are talking about, including to Hawaii. Hell, our old IMO was useless, and she was banking 140-150 in Hawaii.

    well if that is accurate then I don't know how to account for it, but your experience is radically different than mine, and I have observed the kind of pay you claim is impossible occurring.
