I have a feeling that he was posting the annual salary of someone on minimum wage.
Why? What would it even be based on, 40 hour weeks?
If that is the case though, wow, that's crazy! You'd have to work 40? hours a week for 10 years just to buy a graphics card? :O
R$1100 is the minimum monthly wage for a full-time job.
I don't know how things are over there where you live Kapi, but it's quite obvious that whatever minimum wage is there, it's not what most people make on a full-time job. In Brazil, most jobs tread near the minimum wage level, for a supposed 40-hour work week (they often go well above 40 hours).
