Things are Also a LOT more expensive in Australia. It is not possible for someone on $16 an hour to afford a brand new car and a house.
This meme is bullsh*t
yes...BUT you failed to mention that the AUSD and USD are almost equal.
so while our mickey D's employees make 6 bucks and buy cheaper sh*t
the australians are still making more money than the Americans because the conversion rate is damn near identical.
don't get it twisted, australia is the place to be. They really know how to keep their people happy and run their governement. Three party systems, very open and tolerant culture, high wages, good healthcare. It's one of the few countries on the rise.
India is slowly becoming that place too, but that's going to take another decade or so.
