Boss told me he couldn't raise my salary, since according to him, I was already overpaid. Months later they suddenly outsource some positions, including mine. I got 6 months with payment as a parachute. But I also got a new job that pays $15 000 more each year...!

It's nice to have double salary for 6 months...

    Let's just say that the living cost I way higher here where I live. But I know that in e.g San Francisco this is a "normal" salary for someone working in the valley.

    $28000 is low elsewhere in the world, but might perhaps be on the upper part of salary ranks in Fiji? (just guessing here...)
