Part of the reason is age.

You’re probably thinking of NOW right? Yes fresh graduates these days with good honors may get 4k and above.

but if you’re talking to uncles in their 50s and 60s, back when they were fresh out of school they only got 2k+ and it wasn’t until their 30s they reached 4k.

No use one. My parents have no concept of time value of money or real income. They think $1 today today is the same as $1 50 years ago.

but they know how to complain things expensive only.
