I am new in the country, just went to the hospital and was required to fill in the forms. Annual household income i noted 30000 my dh is a student and that is what he gets, we have savings, but 30 k is his annual income. The receptionist rolled her eyes and asked 30 k a YEAR? Is it that little?

It's below poverty level, but that's not exactly uncommon nowadays.

Yes that is low income for a family, but she didn't need to be rude.

I lived on 13k a year during my late teens/early 20s.
My husband will be making 55k a year if he gets promotion.

1 mom liked this

That was very rude of her. I would have asked to speak with her manager

I said yes, but it made me wonder how much she makes and what is an average here
