Ah well, they can just about go anywhere like wild cards... Thanks and Groans is the Gold that holds all these gems together.

I don't think Porsch meant to be insensitive however hard the pictures to take. It is true to say that many here in CH, UK, US etc, have no idea what true poverty really is.
after Katrina folks in US got a glimpse of poverty in US...

I think this is now well and truly off-topic so I'll close it before it wanders even further.

You know it would have been interesting if this also took into account age groups along with the salaries and family size.

Never the less... GOT TO GET TO UPPER CLASS!

Well, considering it's about twice the national average, the answer would have to be

YES!

As it had returned, more or less, to the designated path I'll leave it running now. (I must have forgotten to actually do the deed this morning)

I was surprised to hear that 120 K per year is an easy salary to get!! Can you give more details. I did the highest education possible and my salary still under 90 0000 frs!

Ummm. The highest education possible in what?

Re: Is CHF120K a good salary in Switzerland?
 
It depends on what you do, and how long you've been doing it.

For shop clerks and hairdressers it's perhaps not so easy.

120K obviously isn't a good enough salary for decent modding ;)

Junior IT support with just a diploma and a first experience would be 75k to 90k, while a 10 year experienced HR with Uni degree would be about the same.

If you got + 5 years experience in IT (specially in Swiss companies) + couple of certificates and just a diploma, you would be looking at +100k easily

Yes I agree with you Mowvich, We don't need to have a high university degree in order to get a high salary...

Re: Is CHF120K a good salary in Switzerland?
 
When i say something i say it with a reason.

When i started looking for Zurich (1 year ago), 120k was the average value for 7 years of experience in IT in Zurich. I have that kind of income plus health insurance with 300 chf excess and other perks.

One friend of university that came in 2005, he says to me. Guy you have been tricked. 150k chf is the least for recent graduates (but he came in 2005).

Last week, i know a 24 year recent graduate in economy that is moving and he got plus 120k (13 instalments and not 12) plus 3 month paid temporary house and a huge annual bonus.

That is why i asked......

If we look to ads the values are lower than 100k. But when i talk to people here and they have 3000 apartments, eat beef a lot, going to ski every weekend the 120k seems the pretty low standard....
