Or you didn't put into account that regional and cost of living varies from place to place and locational salary is different even in 100 miles of stretch..
I realize you probably haven't traveled, but next time you google something, you also need to google that small fact thanks. Because here minimum wage is 650 a month. And a 1 bed 1 bath studio apartment is about 400 a month + utilities included in that payment.
Again thanks for showing the rest of us how ignorant you are. You truly keep bringing me back to this post just on that small fact alone- its amusing.
Here, my rent is $1100 and I clear $4k a month - So you might see why $1400 a month would seem low to me - That wouldn't be enough to afford food, transport, or yaknow, living. If you told anyone here you made $1400 a month, they'd give you a weird look because if you're working 40 hour weeks, that means you're around $10 an hour, which is under minimum wage. Just as a comparison, minimum legal working wage in Australia would clear you $2400 a month.
Not that it matters much, but I've most assuredly travelled more miles than you or your truck ever has, since I've been all through the states, Canada, Europe 2x, Africa, and Australia, living in Australia and Europe and (currently) Canada before.
Not sure where you're living where a studio apartment is $400 per month. Where are you at, anyways?
Also, for the record, I know all about truck driving as well - My stepdad was a truck driver - However, doing 60 hour weeks he cleared around $4500 a month, which works out to around $23/man hour. It just seems strange to me you'd be making $1400 for the long hours truckers put in and the hard life it is sometimes, but then again, like you said, I don't know where you are - You could be trucking somewhere in Cambodia for all I know.
