This was posted in the central travel thread and I was curious to get feedback from other sections of the country. Are the wages substantially different in other areas? I know for instance that there was a recent survey of consumer prices that put Las Terrenas as the most expensive place to buy grocercies..... But how about wages? Would these figures be about the same for Santo Domingo?Office assistans in a law office make about $7,000 ($200 USD) to $10,000 ($300 USD)
in Santiago in Santo Domingo they make a bit more than that.
An office?s messange with his own moto will make about $9,000 ($270 USD) plus about $500 extra weekly for gas, a factory worker will make about 1,200 a week ($35 USD), a wachman will make about $10,000 to 12,000 a month, a motoconcho in Santiago will make about $300 to $500 pesos daily, a girl working in a banca (lotery bets) will make about $1,500 ($40 USD) every 2 weeks, plus a monthly bonus of about $1,000 ($35 UDS), a girl working in a supermarket will make about $7,000 to $8,500 a month with extra hours.
