I wonder how long we’ll stay friends on Facebook.
I literally just deleted someone for sharing that picture! Was a coincidence
American followers i need enlightenment!!
$15 an hour sounds like quite a lot of money to me as the minimum wage in the UK is £6.50 an hour.
I understand that exchange rates would make $15 an hour equate to around £9.30 an hour which in the UK would be a pretty good wage of about £18.100 give or take and that amount of money is damn good for “unskilled” work.
So my question is to anyone who earns the current minimum wage in the USA to give me an idea of monthly outgoings etc as I’m trying to wrap my head around how say, $10 an hour wouldn’t be a living wage.
I have been led to believe that in much (but not all), of the USA has a lower cost of living that the UK so why is there such a demand for this $15 as a living wage?
Thanks for reading and if you can respond that would be awesome.
Ps. The post just reminded me of this issue, obviously whoever made the meme is a dickhead who doesn’t understand shit.
