11500 gross is more than 2000 EUR net.
Yea, I know. It's pretty basic.
The average wage in Katowice is roughly 5000zl per month (salaryexplorer.com/salary-survey.php?loc=2005&loctype=3), so what this guy is going to get is exactly that, average.
He will most certainly earn more than 2000E if he was doing the same job in Ireland, Germany etc.
Man, you can work in Tesco in Ireland and earn 1800E per month, so just imagine who much an IBM pro would earn :)
the cost of living in PL is considerably lower than in Germany not to mention France or UK
Not really, things like food and drink and utilities are cheap. But clothes, petrol are far more expensive here when you think about purchasing power.
Y'know, the more I think about this the more I'd be convinced not to come to Katowice on such a wage, especially since it appears that it will have to support 2 people.
