Thought it would be fun to see the results. Please include ONLY your salary not the household salary. Your salary excluding bonus/perks/benefits etc.

Interesting that no one earns less than $75 K. A slap in the face for Lou(sy) Dobbs (Jack A$$)who always refers us as CHEAP labour.

More than Salary its location which matters.

50K in MS = 60K in TX = 80 K in CA = 90K NYC

Agreed.

Unfotunately, there is no way to poll more than one option.

Right on!!
I am not sure how these questions will help? Maybe it will proove that we are high skilled and highly paid members who cannot even contribute $20!!

Indians dont want to pay, they want everything free or cheap.

FYI--I am also an Indian.

Proves that we are not cheap labor and we are not driving the salaries down. I know citizens in my position in my company are not being paid more than me. We had waited for three months to fill a position and we have to compromise in the end because we could not get enough resumes to go through.

Who are the guys making more than 250K? Why are they stuck in retrogression?

I am assuming that if you are salaried employee and making more than 250K, you should be at executive level qualified for EB1 visa - which is current for all countries.

These folks are most likely doctors...doctors salaries are in that range.

Everyone's got his/her own circumstances which are so beyond how much you are making. Just a matter of personal priorities which for me, for instance, were to pay my lawyers bills until the moment my employer stepped in and picked up the tab :) The point is if someone's making 100K/annum and says that he can't spare $20 for IV needs -- he/she got different priorities which are not necessarily wrong.

Deduct all the required insurance premiums, work related stress, real possibility of a major screwup/lawsuit, as well as years spent in school/residency/training etc, and I'm sure you'll reconsider your position about being in a wrong field :D

...proves to who?? Would we be just making ourselves happy??

Not sure if an "independent" consultant on H1B can make more than 250K. Considering he is working 2080 hours in a year. He has to get $120/hour for himself + his employer cut. In 2000, you could have demanded those rates....but, now days I doubt.

May be we need to run our salary against the Cost Of Living Index to get the fair picture.

Agreed.
