For example, he said there is a developer who had no programming degree/background and commands a salary of $6.5k per month after 2 years into the industry. There is another developer who had 4 years experience and is now drawing close to $10k per month. Is this normal? How did these people manage to convince the company to pay them that much?
2 years into the industry and you can absolutely go for 7/8k a month jobs on software.

Lets say grab 5.5k starting, 1 year in with a raise to 6.2k, and another year in you can jump to another company with 20% increase to your 7.5k
