I'd like to vote for the higher salaries but that'd mean I condone the effect of this, which would be inflation, which would in turn, make life harder for all the street cleaners, security guards, gardeners and the countless other menial occupations which get paid little to nothing and already live marginal lives!

i voted for more.

If i have a house, i think i would vote 5000-6000, that will provide me a quite comfortable life. But if i am going to buy a house in the future, 6000-7000 will be far from enough as the house pirce is just too high.......

Tough one... I didn't vote because there are so many different jobs.

What's minimum wage? ~1000/month?

For people starting out, I think 3000-4000 is a realistic starting salary. You can have a small apartment on your own or share to save more money. But if you've been working somewhere a long time of course you should work your way up. So.... I'm not sure how to answer. Plus I'm not chinese, so my expenses and future plans are not the same.
I am not rich.  :L

I' am sorry to tell you that the starting salary for tax is 2000RMB in China now.
It should be more choices for high salary for the big cities in the vote.

For a young newcomer with a university degree and decent knowledge of English an amount of CNY 3,000 to max. 4,000. For an experienced staff, somebody who is married and is the only provider for his family I believe that CNY 6,000 to max. CNY 7,000 is ok. On top of it (in both cases) meal allowance, commuting allowance and housing allowance as well as a performance related annual one time payment.

The whole package (excl. the performance part) should be payable 13 times p.a.
