  • Australia's minimum wage is over double the US minimum wage

    Australia minimum wage: $15.96 hr

    United States minimum wage: $7.25 hr



    $1 Australian dollar equates to $1.07 US dollars



    Damn, i'm moving to Australia and getting a low stress, low responsibility job.



    Granted, they do have to pay more when ordering american goods online, but it's nowhere near double!

      Just be aware that the dollar is likely to fall back to the 80-90 US cent mark in the medium to long term.



      Just saying.

            That's crazy. It needs to be about $20.00 and hour.
            Sure, God is all powerfull, but does he have lips?

                        That's why their economy is in the toilet!
