You need information regarding salary levels for survival and comfortable living. Let me put it this way for you - for survival, $40-$45k is enough. Beyond that whatever you earn is upto you how you wish to live. 45-60 can give you comfort, less savings. $60-100k more comfort, more savings (or luxury, your choice).

Most IT guys with your experience will make minimum $60k and depending on your specialization could be double this. After 1 yr of WP you become eligible for PR, which opens more doors for you. The trend in IT is to be self employed rather than payroll for better returns.

Guessing that you and your wife are fairly young, 4-5 years exposure in this part of the globe will help, not harm your future prospects. Of course if you believe in living like a king with an army of servants to do all your chores, your life will be miserable here, stay where you are.

Good luck.

Half full or half empty !!

Everyone speaks from their experience and they are entitled to it.

I don't go around meeting people at Mc Ds or Tiimmies (will leave that to others who do) but off late I have started observing a change in demographics on IT floors here ..... lesser and lesser of white natives and more of Indians , Chinese and other immigrants.

Go figure !

(Mind you , these words come from a person who was himself critical more than 10 years back , but as time went by and I have met people, I have found myself corrected )

Why am I feeling that either you don't have access to good workplace offices or have not been frequenting them lately....

OK I will ask you this - when you see a qualified Indian IT guy who can speak well , working at Mc D / Walmart , please let me know !!!


And that rant about Punjabis --- totally uncalled for !! :down:

Haven't returned doesn't mean they are happy or successful. They have nothing left to go back home to and are stuck doing survival jobs over here.

Their life savings are exhausted in coming here, and false pride and the fear of ridicule if they return back ,and the foolish illusion of living in a so called Foreign first world country keeps them here, albeit as Second Class Citizens.
We all know the PHOREN craze and NRI craze in India :)

Plus their children can't adjust in Indian schools anymore, if they go back as they can't speak the local languages and have no Indian culture, roots, attachment left in them.

Catch 22 keeps them here, nothing else nothing more.



Roger that.
However, I would not say that every person who comes here from Non IT background is flipping burgers ar Mc Dick's or brewing coffee at Tims.
May be 1 in 50 sticks there for life but most of the people who Flip Burgers for life at Mc Dick's are the Edit: Racist information removed

Many, like me, got stuck in survival jobs for 1 year but then eventually found positions in my line (My case was a failure since I found one which was akin a labour job and there was not progress in the job).. But after suffering 3-4 years, many land in so called decent job and even able to buy a home.

Roger that ..LMAO.

Wow! So many generalizations in a single post. Kudos to you, bud.

Most Indian IT guys I have met here are nothing but Software coolies, doing some low level coding and programming jobs. They are a laughing stock of the entire office. They are the geeks and nerds all White girls and other hot girls stay away from :)

Or they are doing some support and maintenance job like some low class technician or tech support guy.



So you do agree that you won't find IT guys @ MD / Tims etc .. good for you.

For one , the OP is in IT if I am not mistaken. Hence it makes sense to revolve your recommendation around that.

For two from your statements , I can easily make out that you are not an IT guy and do not know them from close quarters.

They are a highly respected lot because of the value they add and the salaries they draw. Neither is programming a low level job nor is it lesser paid. In fact do a reality check and you will find IT to be the highest paying field here after lawyers and doctors .

But you have to be in that area / interface to understand that.

IT is a high paying field for the White managers, not the Indian software coolie from India who works under them



Nothing can be farther delusional or away from reality than the above statements. Shows complete lack of knowledge of IT and salaries.

PM or IT Manager is just another IT job and may not necessarily earn more then other IT jobs viz developers,architects analysts etc.

And they are certainly not dime a dozen 1 mil for a dozen I would say may be more accurate :)

Appears some one needs to come out of color consciousness.

"Farther" relates to distance, "further" is a definition of degree. You should have said "further"
