Re: how come americans earn so much money?
Luxenbourg has the highest average income of all countries in the world at above $100,000/year. So WTF are you talking about?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4378940


what's the tax rate.
 Quoting: Dr Einstein


how much does a loaf of bread, a pound of beef and a gal.
of gasoline. (dollars, lbs., and gallons :)

sorry, but americans stubbornly refuse to think "metric".

Re: how come americans earn so much money?
You also have to consider we do not get public health care. We do not have secure jobs, we could be outsourced in a second. No workers rights.

I know someone from Germany. They get 30 days paid vacation a year plus German holidays and there are a lot of them. If they get laid off and the company decides they want to fill the position again. They get first pick.
Paid leave for child care. Paid medical, dental. Even cash for the cab ride home with your meds that they gave you.

Here you have to pay for all that.

It's called being a teacher here in UsA. I'm married to a teacher...

Is everything paid by taxpayer money in Germany? It's fine with me if its like that in USA but forget it. Obama ruined that for us.

 Quoting: Dr Einstein


the tax rate is relatively low: 15 percent BUT the living costs are SO fucking high.

When I want to prepare dinner and buy food at some cheap grocery store, it costs me like 20-30 euros for all the food. This is just for dinner and I'm single. Imagine a whole family.


Cars are practically impossible to buy for someone who doesn't have earnings. They look at your salary history.

 Quoting: Dr Einstein


Sorry I don't know the non metric system but here it's how I know it is:

loaf of bread: 2 euros to 2.50 (average white bread)

meat at some walmartlike mall is like 4 to 6 euros and can rise up to 9 or 10 euros at some good store. (Local meat)


The gasolin is the cheapest product we have here. It's very well known that luxembourg has one of the lowest prices in whole europe. I think it was like 1.50 euro/liter a month ago.

this is all very interesting. because we americans have
no idea about the european socialist government systems,
or to what success they may be having in bringing "prosperity
and tranquility" to the People.

i hope we can hear more about how things work in the various
countries.

I make 23K Euro a year in salary. I feel like complete fucktwat.

I don't have a university degree but even with a uni degree I wouldn't gain as much as you guys make a year (70 to 80 K). I read these numbers a lot here on glp.. HOW do you guys do this.

That would be 46 -50 K a year.

What a 1000 dollars bought back in the 50s takes 26,000 to buy today. It is called INFLATION and means nothing other than it takes 26 x now to purchase what you could have 60 years ago.

Think Wiemar Republic and a wheelbarrel full of paper currency to buy a loaf of bread.

So, do Americans not have an Idea at all how things are over here? And you are welcome, no worries, I don't think the americans are dumbasses.

I'm not used to the non-metric system either. To be honest, I don't know if I prefer living freely in America and having more chances to get more money OR to stay here in europe with free healthcare BUT feel like a capitalist slave..

But well I shouldn't complain. At least we have it better than 3rd world countries.

A lot of Americans are poor - don't believe that we all make $60-70K per year. I have a degree and work for a school system - $42,000 here. It's chicken feed, really.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7570540




Yes my wife is a teacher also but when you add hers and mine we bring in close to 100k on a good year, and that is without overtime......I'm a electrician and 60k is pretty easy since I don't like overtime anyway.

If I wanted to chase money and not live most the time at home I could make between 150k to 200k overseas, but that isn't my kind of life and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be married after long.

European wages are being averaged throughout the eurozone.

This is a direct result of the Euro itself.

There is nothing that can be done about this. In the next two years, this will radically intensify.
