What's the minimum wage in Germany ? Probably 100 dollars an hour and they can hop on a bullet train and get to anywhere in Europe in 20 minutes and retire @40 & free health care & are allowed to drink as least a quart of beer on their lunch break. Free education 4 months of vacation a year. Meanwhile in California gasoline is so costly many are not going to work=net loss. Quoting: Black Diamond 20028740
Uuuhh...I assume your post was kinda ironic because it's so far from the truth. Here are some facts for you:
- We don't have a minimum wage in Germany. There are people that work for like 3 Euros/hour which is beyond ridiculous. An average worker might earn around 10 Euros/hour - before taxes
- It is true we do have so called bullet trains but they serve bigger cities only and in most cases you won't get anywhere far away within 20 mins. Plus a ride on such trains costs a shitload of money.
- Actually our retirement age is at 67 atm. It's very likely that people that are in their 30s right now will have to work until 70 or even longer.
- I don't know of any company that allows drinking alcohol during work (which includes lunch break) anymore
- It's true that basic education is free but if you want to study you'll have to pay a couple of hundred Euros per season depending on where you want to study.
- Most companies allow 30 days of vacation per year which amounts to like 1.5 months
