Salary in Russia.
Hi, if it's interesting for someone.
There's a class system here in Russia. We start with the class 3 which followed by 2 and 1. They pay 20% more for each class and it takes about 3 years to get next class.
Pay is vary greatly across the country depending on the region, the far norh or east The higher salary. It's from 1,000US/month up to 4,000US/month for class 3 and from 1,500US/month up to 5,500US/month for fully qualified ATCs. The only tax is 13% for everyone.
Here we work 36 hours a week and have 55-85 days off as vacation per year, depending on the region.

Since this thread is a bit old, can anyone care post what would be the annual gross income for a veteran journeyman controller at the top of the pay band, in whichever is the highest paying busy facility in Europe?

Just looking to compare to what our top earning veterans at the busy facilities here make.

now in Ukraine after taxes (tax rate 30%):
trainee - 120USD/month
ATCO - from 400 to 600USD/month (20+ years of service)
Supervisor - 750USD/month
apartment rent in Kyiv costs apx 150-300$. If u want to buy one - 'd pay at least 50000$.
cars are more expensive than in most European countries (prices are 40% higher than in USA). 1 liter of gas (1/4 gallon)= 90 cents.
The only cheap thing is public transportation (subway and local buses cost just 15-20 cents).

I presume that is US Dollars. Seems very little to me; unless your cost of living is VERY low !

That's not salary; that's costs, not the same thing. Misleading without the accompanying context.
