It's Mexico, you're lucky if you made 20k a year.

Could this be seen as a conditional sentence by putting made in the past tense? Since we're conversing in the present but I'm implying that he'd be lucky if he hypothetically made 20k a year...

Or should it be lucky if you make 20k a year....since it's in present time.

Input'd be nice.

You have a comma splice problem here -- two sentences joined by a comma.

In Mexico you're lucky if you make 20K a year.

The hypothetical form has would:

In Mexico you would be lucky if you made 20K a year.
