Comment Salary in Taiwan is NOT $1150 per year (Score 1) 418

As pointed out elsewhere, the parent post misinterpreted the figure for monthly salary as annual. According to the article, the _average_ worker earns US $13,800 annually - which is roughly in line with the per capita nominal GDP of US $17,000.
