YES [your salary] is enough!!!

The average person in Switzerland gets about 60k a year and that includes people with families to support.

So you people, who make those useless repetitive topics asking if you can survive on some salary most of us cant even dream about, please, do some f****** research! Yes Switzerland is expensive but your salary is more than enough. For a single person 200k (or 120k or whatever) is more than enough!! There is a search button. Use it! Will save you getting some red blobs for your stupid, pointless, repetitive questions

I think it depends on where you live. Where I live, this may be true. Along the banks of lake of Zürich, your quoted amount may be too low.

Re: YES its enough!!!

LOL I was going to suggest that someone who knows about salaries and costs of living do a thread and then make it a sticky. Summarizing the taxes on all kantons etc. When I came here I looked at the cost of life in a webpage I researched and adjusted my salary to it...didnt work though

The last time I checked, it is 12th April 2010. Is this a special day where I am unaware of, where statistically, more people tend to wake up on the wrong side of the bed?

Chill girl.

200k doesn't depend on where to live.

Re: YES its enough!!!

Uhu....mind your blood pressure my friend

I totally agree with you but you simply fail to understand that these people (i.e. those who posts their salaries) are not really in the market for an answer to their (stupid) questions. They just want to flash whatever they are earning.

This is a forum on the internet. Everything is virtual reality and you can be (and earn) whatever you choose.

BTW: I earn 700K CHF and drive a Ferrari........

There are people out there with genuine queries and there are people whose sole intention is to flash and troll.

I believe the person in question falls in the latter category. Only one way to deal with them and it doesnt involve increasing your blood pressure.

Re: YES its enough!!!

Please tell me you are not getting your nickers in a twist about this thread: Best place to live in Switz. on 200K a year?

Clearly a wind-up/humour(less) thread...

I know you live in the boonies, but really!!!

House's with proper walls, roof's not made from the skins of animals you have butchered in you sitting room with your Swiss army knife, and el-ec-tr-ci-ty can be had by most people for a fraction of that... even on the Zurichsee
