I think, thisnurse, that a "decent" salary is defined by different people.
To some, a "decent" salary is AT LEAST six figures.
To some, a "decent' salary is enough to have a modest home and a modest car.
To some, a "decent" salary is just enough to pay the bills.
In a small town in Wisconsin, my step mother in law makes $8/hour packing pickles at a plant. She has health coverage and can pay the bills on her small house. She clips coupons, etc. She considers her salary "pretty decent" for that area. Is she wrong?
Do you see how a "decent" salary can be interpreted diferently?
