Not even worth negotiating on. Tell them to stick it.

Go no where near it , as the O.P said you need to Quadruple the salary and rocket the benefits .

Ive got supervisors on a better deal than that .

Thanks guys,
I declined this offer right away; my fixed monthly expenses are over $1,000 …
I wanted to hear some thoughts from other expats.
Terms were really nasty: Single room (maybe in some shoebox), transportation is probably small bus w/o AC, no private health insurance…
