    If I may say something,no matter your pay rate until you stabilize the value of Nigerian currency we do not need to talk about real salary to any class of people.If you divide whatever you pay any body by 500,almost every working Nigerian is starving. May be one of the reasons why most people are not doing what they are supposed to do. A monthly allowance we send home is more than the salary of a Nigerian graduate working full time.Let the Federal government make entrepreneurial worth the risk, many Nigerians will invest at home and make use of home talents
