Are u the American?.
You know America is land of opputunities. You make money from whatever job you do... even the waitress in the restuarent make more money than the CEO of Haier c ...
Yes, I'm American. How much does the CEO of Haier make?
You said a waitress can make $100 a day. Yes, she can. That's $2000/month, or about $16,000RMB. Sounds like a lot? Well, don't forget everything is more expensive here. I thought you lived here and would know the price of rent and utilities & food. She might need to pay
you say even poor americans can own cars? Let's say she has one, we won't ask how she paid for it, assume it's old & cheap and paid off.
$100 car insurance (varies greatly)
$40 - averaged over 12 months - car repairs & maintenance
$20 - basic phone (no long distance, not cell phone)
does she want cable TV and internet, like the CEO surely has?
$100 - cable TV/internet
$1660 so far..... what have I left out?
OH! She needs to eat! And buy things like toilet paper, toothpaste, clothes, laundry detergent, soap, .... on $340 a month?!?!? Ha.... and I'm sure I forgot things.... like the taxes that will be taken out of her pay to begin with.
And if she has any kids forget it, she'll need to collect food stamps or some kind of welfare.... and what's that??? Oh right, waitresses are part -time and don't get health benefits. Oh how will she pay for a doctor bill?
And forget about leisurely things like movies or anything fun that costs anything... and she doesn't have a cell phone remember.... is that how the CEO of Haier lives? Maybe, I don't know.
