Having 40k USD doesn't mean you get to spend that all on a developer.
At least in Europe there is a huge amount of overhead (factor of
2.0-2.5 IIRC for .nl).

It's a reasonable pre-tax salary for an American. :) (We almost always
think of pre-tax salary.) Like I said, it's not competitive for a
developer, and I don't think hiring a developer is really a good idea,
but it's a reasonable salary.

I'm talking about that when a company gives someone a salary of 40k USD,
the amount it costs the company is (at least in Europe) significantly
higher than 40k USD. After that you have what you mentioned: taxes (for
employee), etc.
