Graphic Designer - Salary

Hi I am in the process of hiring a Graphic Designer from Ho Chi Minh City to work for me part time remotely.

I read that the minimum wage in Vietnam is about $150 (USD) so I have been offering $150 (USD) but for part time work - thinking that its a better offer considering that it is twice the average minimum. However, a lot of my candidates between 2-5 years experience are expressing that this is pretty low. And most of them are suggesting the $300-$400 range for part time work.

Not being a local there, I am not sure if this is correct. I just dont wanted to be cheated. Can somebody tell me if this sounds right or am I being taken advantage of?

I appreciate your help.
