外文标题：Has China catched up with Turkey in salaries?
I went to Istanbul, Turkey and Guangzhou,China
In Istanbul, the restaurant waiters make about 1000-1100 Lira per month, while in Guangzhou the waiters make about 2500-3000 Yuan plus free accomodation/food.
1 Lira = 2.7 Yuan
Has China catched up with Turkey in salaries?
2500-3000 RMB per month in China city, it's a low pay salary. Tell the truth, most service jobs in China belong to low income.
Most high salary jobs in Finance / Bank / Engineering / Manufacturing, as i see current Average Salary in China city is about 4,000~6,000 RMB per month from West China to East China.
it is really not a good idea to work in Guangzhou as a waiter
in many cities in the hinterland, the waiters' salaries are only a few hundred Yuan less, like 2200 Yuan
GDP per capita of Turkey nearly 11,000 usd / year ( China 6,800 )
in PPP Turkey 18,000 / China 11,000
It's clearly that Turkish has higher income.

3,000 RMB salary Chinese waiter in here

for the restaurants in the lower pics, 4000-5000 Yuan or even more per month, not 3000 Yuan
Five-Star Hotel, not a normal restaurant. Five-Star Hotel didn't lack money, it's not suprise that it can provide 5,000 RMB salary to waiters.
If u get a manager job in China big restaurant, u also can earn 5,000 ~ 10,000 RMB salary per month.
will Waiter in China ask for a tip ?
waiter with few hundreds rmb of salary? there's no cheap salary like that.
a few hundres rmb less than 2500, like 2200
Are you seriously comparing China to Turkey? Chinese salaries have gotten higher in last decade but nowhere close to Turkish salaries. Even Chinese who work for multinational countries like Apple are getting paid very low. That is why they don't have domestic consumer power. The money is just enough to feed themselves. The salaries and work intensity is so harsh that a lot of Chinese are commiting suicide.
Nets outside of the building because Chinese are throwing themselves of the building to stop the missery.
Stupid comment like before, U just living in ur sweet dream. kenduffy visted China and Turkey, he understand the truth between two nations. Where u went before ?
As a engineer, i ever worked in FOXCONN R&D Center. As far as i know even FOXCONN normal operator on assembly line, they have 2,000~2,500 RMB basic salary + 500~1,500 RMB overtime allowance, 3,000~3500 RMB salary/ month. The Engineer in FOXCONN office earn 5,000~15,000 RMB salary. The only problem in FOXCONN, is produce schedule usually force our guys must work 9~10 hours in a day during several weeks, so work in FOXCONN is harder but salary is not less.
I worked in FOXCONN for Three Years to support Acer PC project, earn some money then i quit. 2nd reason i found the TaiWan comapny is the worst foreign company in this world, damn sh!t company culture. But FOXCONN taught me more ...
The OP is comparing the salaries
you are just ridiculous, engineers or professionals in China earn better than Turkey.
In good IT companies, the salaries are similar to Europe.
The workers in Apple you mentioned is not actually working for Apple, but for a manufacturing company Foxxcon, which manufacture goods for Apple. And they are low-level workers with junior middle school education, not those professionals like engineers/marketing, blabla
