Wow. How sad that the average salary is so low.

As an American, I worry that globalization will kill this country as... well... we can be pretty lazy.

Yet on the other hand, I really hope to see the day when everyone makes a wage equivalent to one another and it is your skill that dictates how high you can go, not where you live. As I am not an economist, I have no idea if that even can happen.

You needn't be sad. More than likely, the goods and services there are actually much cheaper than here in the absolute sense. So they may still be living decently, relatively.

The day when everyone makes equivalent wages influenced by skill is the day when globalization dominates. It'll be truly one global economy.

What's more interesting is these power levelers making more than teachers. It seems EULA breaking services are beneficial in some sense.

I don't get it. Why don't the gaming companies have select servers where for a extra fee you can have you character leveled.

The advantages:

There is no waiting for your character to be leveled it happens the minuet you pay for it.

The company hosting the game can roll that extra money back into their company to improve the game.

Finally, no more market for illegal power leveling.

What I find more incredible (I mean c'mon, lots of workers in the States make more money than teachers) is the fact that 2.7 million VND (vietnamese dong) equals $160! Vietnam has greater problems than maintaining class balances between power levelers and teachers.
