The Big Match Up: AUS v US
After returning to Australia after living in the States for 5 years I was astonished by the high cost of living in Australia. In the style of an old boxing poster, I compared the price of various lifestyle items using the minimum wage as a comparison. This is highly simplified and does not take into consideration of taxes, size of population (big market versus small market etc). The data would also look very different if I based it on middle income salaries and not the minimum wage...this is coming next.
