    I did offer my opinion, it's just not what you want to hear, sorry.

    Please answer my question. Do you prefer $50,000 or $1,000,000? I am so curious to hear what your opinion is.

    It's not that simple. Not everybody can be millionaires, there's not enough money.
    Naturally, I'd like to earn enough to be comfortable and on $50K with my savings, I'd live like a king.

    Unless the difference in min wage changes the cost of the things I would need to purchase to survive, I'm not sure it matters.

    It would seem to make more rational sense to compare with a Big Mac. But psychologically humans derive a lot from being 'better' than others. There has been lots of research that confirms that.
