    Texas, baby.
    $1000/month??? Heck no.

    I'm an in-house web developer and I started out at $1600 as a junior designer and now making way more as full-time.

    At least double that for someone with less than a year's experience.

    A good way to get a salary indication is to check on one of the job board aggregator sites. Do a search for the role you have in mind and order the results by salary.

    Indeed and CareerJet are good.

    On Indeed, once you run the search, it will show in the left hand margin how many jobs there are for various salaries - that's all you need to look at.

    Cost depends on country for junior/mid skilled developer. For anything above that, the prices go high regardless of country (unless you get super lucky).

    In Florida you can't legally pay under U$ 1268/mo for a full time job at the current minimum wage of U$ 7.93

    So you start from U$ 1268 for a completely unqualified person. Assuming they got experience in IT and certifications/degrees, you're probably looking at several times that minimum wage.
