You are right about the salaries for freshies. However look from a long term perspective. You can take it as jumping stone to land on a better paid job here in KL.At least 40% more is like too much to ask for for a fresh grad. These days, an average fresh grad with degree in Ipoh can get like 2-2.5k salary. KL from what I heard from many of my similarly aged friends, most also just 3k and 3k is considered as a good deal already. Otherwise, it would be 2.8k like that. Many who went out are living with a shoestring budget especially those who are also paying for car installment. Wasn't really living the life even though already working... But that is just me and my life, not trying to imply that other people are wrong or what.
Think about 5 years later, where do you see yourself as in Ipoh and in KL. Just my 2 cents.
