As usual, your limited knowledge of nuances in the English language have hoist you by your own petard once again.

The fact that only Asian Construction workers are here, doesn't mean one cannot live off 3K a month, especially with the largest single expense already taken care of (rent). I know expats who are also living off salaries in the 3K range without the benefit of housing being provided.

Counting his share of the utilities and internet/TV connections which are probably covered as well, would translate to somewhere around 4.5K/mo. This is not a bad salary at all for even a local engineer with 4 or 5 years experience. The OP has not indicated his position or anything else, so I'm guessing that he's probably in the Sales/Marketing line, possibly investment portfolios (he's commission based) so he could be making considerably more. I'd be willing to bet he's planning on socking away all of his commissions, hence his question about basing his ability to live here only on his salary.

So I really didn't answer for you and once again, you have possibly let your mouth overload your butt. :wink:


I think it's a google translate special language......

With 3k spending money, the OP will even be able to afford a weekly trip to OT for 'networking'!!

It's a handy tool that google translator :roll:

Someone said they doubt any construction workers in the world get $3000, my brother is a bricklayer and he used to earn a lot more than that before the financial crisis came along and raped the building trade in the UK. Things are picking up again now though and he's back earning more than the mentioned amount, and he's not the only one.

Are you kidding?

Thats more or less £1500 a month before tax , I reckon every single construction worker in the UK earns more than that.

I would hazard a guess that everywhere in Western Europe construction pays more than $3000(or equivalent) a month

And in Spain, before the crisis, construction workers, plumbers, and so were making as big money (or bigger) than some doctors or lawyers. It's offer and demand, as everything.

Everybody wants to be engineer, doctor, ... but not plumber. So there are not too many, they are always requested, and they make a lot of money.

So you can't generalize based in the SG situation, where guys from other countries come here to earn what is peanuts for SG but a big money for them
