22. What I am saying is 25 cents/hr wage can give chinese a life that
meets their basic needs in life. Basic needs. Food, shelter, clothing, grocery, etc....of course not everybody drives a SUV, subscribes to cable TV, has heated apartment and flushing toilet, that's for sure. But for the basic needs, 25 cents per hour is a pretty good income that is plentiful. If people live in China can be fed reasonable well by this 25 cents hour wage, it can only conclude that the cost of living is too high here.
