Yes, as a business owner I feel wages are too high in the western world.  I'm with the Left on the subject, we need more immigrants.  Wages are near perfect in the rest of the world.

I do hope you were being sarcastic. 

The only immigrants who get lower wages in the US are illegals and they cost the US much more than any savings the business owners may get.


At$10,298 who would be able to buy your product?

Wow---300 PHP a day working at Robinsons is a perfect wage and you usually have to have a bunch of college just to get the job.

if you think that then why don't you come to the RP and try to live on that as you obviously need a reality check.

Why they are the real deal hard working to often feed their familys i treat them as family this last saturday daughters bd so we invited the helpers to eat at viking

i thought the question was what I (or you) enjoy.

Sure if that what you enjoying why not? But if that's is the only reason for staying in the Philippines - again I would pack up my things and leave). Same as some complaining about all aspects of living here and the only thing makes it bearable to live in the Philippines are helpers - again I would get a life!!!

Unless you are just waiting to die and want to be served (for me just a waste of life)

I don't want the entire world to make $10.29, but agree there should be some equalization.  The western world needs to come down, and the rest of us come up :-)  I believe that is what has been happening over the last 20 years, however slowly, but moving in the right direction.

I disagree about the illegals are the only ones with lower wages.  I know it's difficult finding citizens to do hard back breaking work such as picking grapes, for $13/hr in my area, so we are forced to hire "legal" immigrants.  There is lots of competition for those immigrants from surrounding farms which are forcing wages up.  There is seriously a severe labor shortage.

Ok can you quote the average wage in the US? Maybe a miserable $10-12 an hour, that is why they tip, the employers are too miserable to pay a fair wage. Most civilized countries don't tip they pay their workers a fair wage.

Sorry, I will rephrase the question, what is the "minimum" wage in the US? Minimum wage is around $20 an hour in Aussie. Tipping is discouraged.

Each State has it's own minimum wage. Oregon is at $11.25 currently, Washington $12, which is about $18 AUD.

The current minimum Aussie wage is now $21.6 roughly $14.70 US. I presume the US salary tax rate is similar in most states. The current annual Aussie salary is around $85,000 pa.

The US has lower tax rates and a lower cost of living than Australia. 

Thanks to tips, many of our tipped employees make FAR more than Aussies at the same jobs - such as restaurant and club employees, etcetera.

Tipping is the norm in not just the US, but all of North America, including Canada and Mexico. 

Anybody who doesn't like tipping, great, don't come here. Trust me, they won't be missed.
