I would define a good salary as one which allows a disciplined person to live a fulfilling life while remaining free of debt.
If you aspire to own a 250k semi, have 2 or 3 kids, own a new car & have a holiday abroad each year then earning 22k isn't going to be seen as a decent salary.
If you want a 90k 2 up 2 down, modest run around, no kids and like camping in bakewell then 22k will be seen as decent.
A decent salary is one that provides you with the lifestyle that you want.
Not what other people might perceive as a decent salary.
