  7. actually, those prices are accurate market value compared to the US

    USD 5.95 for three pieces of chicken, fries, and a soda is the going rate or cheaper in NYC. And Jamaican chicken is real chicken any way.

  10. Yes, the prices may be comparable with the United States.But the big difference is the question of income in Jamaica vis-a-vis the U.S.Since Jamaican income on average is comparably and considerably lower,it results in the prices for the respective meals being much more expensive.RESPECT!!

  11. Esteban I suppose the fact that they are not using real chickens helps them reduce prices and produce more

  12. actually, after scouring the internet for any information at all about wages in Jamaica, I find that ones that are actually published are frighteningly low. How the entire nation hasn't starved to death yet is the burning question that now lingers in my mind.
    I want to know, what is a reasonable salary for a non-managerial office position for someone with 3 or more years of experience, a 4-year degree, and good computer skills?

  13. someone once told me that its best not to tell them how much you want - let them make you an offer. If they try to pressure you for a figure say: "I'm sure you guys have a budget but I'll take 5 million if you can afford it. MAKE ME A DAM OFFER!". anything you do don't tell the a figure. I searched but fell asleep try 1 of these sites

  14. the last thing I saw was that nurses are making approximately $20,000 US annually. At those wages, a person would be able to receive public assistance here in the states in the form of food stamps as well as housing subsidies and heaven knows what else.

  17. Beside the main comments there is this link called "reply", its kinda odd but it should work. hmmm....well if you don't see the reply link - it means its not going to work.

  18. Gods Chilld, a good place to start with respect to information on Jamaican wages is the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN),and the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ).Google any of these institutes and you should be able to get some information on wages and salaries relative to certain professions,careers, and jobs in Jamaica.Also,just google wages in Jamaica,which will result in several newspaper articles addressing minimum wages.Hopefully, you will find the information you are trying to ascertain.RESPECT!!

  19. you know dem site dey update once every 5 years. but she can try, she might get lucky

  20. really, I googled until I was mad, then I came here.
    Nobody wants to say what anybody is paid and I suspect people are lowballing the few available figures though I can't think why.
    I always considered discussing wages a tabu. It is that way with a lot of the people I meet in NYC and that's how I was raised. However, it seems even stronger a tabu in Jamaica. It's like--there can't even be a salary range given. There is absolutely NO transparency whatsoever. No idea as to what is fair. Nothing.
    Here, job boards will say TBA under the salary category but a few will go ahead and say the starting salary is 25K or something. In fact, if you look on craigslist under Executive assistants, you'll find the salary is often the selling point!

  21. its a mental slavery tactic that "the man" uses to keep people ignorant but on the other hand humans are naturally jealous and easily depressed.
