Thanks for most helpful guy :)
Yea its £8.72 now for those 25 and above. Think for 21-24 its £8.20. Which dollar are you referring too? USD? Canadian Dollar? NZD? AUD?
It took a long time to get to that but honestly it should be higher or at least reduce the tax liabilities because the cost of living is crazy. I was referring to the US Dollar. I emigrated to the US from England a couple of years ago.
Why did you go to the US?
@SuccessfulHornDog I was visiting my boyfriend of four years (I kept flying to see him over the four year period) and after I landed, he proposed then we got married and I never left. Lol
That's great. congrats and Welcome
Thank you for the MHO

Where is that? A major urban area?
$7.25 an hour is a joke.
I'm in Florida, you can't live on twice that.
@Muskrat42 how about in the suburbs or urban areas?
Then you need a car, so you have to pay rent Which costs more than you make, and transportation, insurance, gasoline, maintenance etc.. Oh yeah, you need to eat...
@Muskrat42 I hear you but I was thinking about someone making minimum wage and working out by where they live. Minimum wage is not something that people can or should be trying to raise a family on. Its literally meant for the lowest rung of society and teenagers. It gives those without the ability to do anything else a job. We need adults who are capable of learning and advancing to get training in something so that they can support themselves and others.I here that the labor market is depressed in florida because of migrant workers willing to work for lower wages. Is that accurate?
never mind i just checked, it's 12 per hour and 13 per hour if it's bigger companies. CA LA
What do you make of it? Do you feel its reasonable or its quite less? I think its really little if you're based in London because prices here are a bloody joke.
You get your... err.. thingy pay too though the um.. "cost of living" thing.. I agree for London but also i think its all relative, my girlfriend is a manager (like 2 steps from the top, 2 levels below her) and she's on £9 an hour... i live in the west country and tbh thats pretty normal... where as i have a job with clients around the world and a lot in London and am on £15 and one of the more highly paid people i know... still before i got this job 10 years ago it was like £6 an hour! so we making progressI think anything below 20k a year is criminal these days
Thats roughly the same as here.
Sounds like a lot. Just to be clear, USD 14?
No Canadian. Not sure what the exchange is now.
Wow! Thats quite a lot in comparison to the rest of the world. Can you get a lot for that?
Not really. The cost of living here is pretty high.
Thought so. A higher minimum wage in most cases reflects the higher cost of living which often means you don't get much for that.
Nevermind I guess it's changed to $13.50 recently
Around 15€/h for skilled workers
sounds a lot. USD?
Yep in USD it will be 15 an hour by the middle of next year.
Wow thats a lot. What can you get for the hourly rate? Do you get much for it or does it not buy yoh much? For eg with the hourly wage here you can get a large meal at mcdonalds and perhaps a mcflurry and you'd probs still be left with somewhere around £1 or £1.50.
Depends on how many hours you work.
No, i meant what can one hour's wage get you. What i mentioned in my previous comment was basically what you can do with £8.72(one hour's pay).
Oh about about 2 McDonald's big Mac meals.
Where is that?
