Different Countries, Different Salaries!

Thu Aug 14, 2003 9:24 pm

Just out of curiosity, what is the average netto salary in your country? Only in $ & € please!!!
I would realy like to know about the average salary in the US, JP, Europe (Germany, France, Uk ect.,) or even all countries on this planet  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I think that here in The Netherlands the average
netto p.m. is around 1.500,- € what is not that much regarding the high prices (homeloans, cars 56% = 19% VAT + 37% BPM taxes!!! etc.,)

In Canada in 2000, according to StatCan, the average salary was CDN$32,183/year. Say it increased 2%/year in average since, then this year average salary should be around CDN$34,153.

At today's rate exchange with the US$, it's roughly $24,590/year.

Thanks a lot for your answers, QB001, that's not bad lets say that's around 2000,- Euros p/m what you get in Canada, what's about the living costs in overthere?
Sonic, 500,- is not alot to live but maybe the daily live is not so expensiv, please correct me if I'm wrong?

The CIA World Factbook is a mighty good resource for queries like this; definitely worth some hours of reading if you're into this kind of studies.

Luxair,

Canada is a big country, and the cost of living can be quite different from one city to another. The difference between Montréal and Toronto can be enormous sometimes. For example, a house worth, say, $150,000 in Montréal might be worth $300,000 in Toronto, even $450,000 in Vancouver.

And as such, the $25,000/year (in US $) average salary will fluctuate a lot from one region of the country to the next. At a provincial level, the average salary might be $23,000 in the province of Nova Scotia and $27,000 in the province of Alberta. By and large, the cost of living tends to fluctuate with the salaries anyway.

That's what being a big country means sometimes...

Hmmm I see QB001, very interesting and I can imagine what you mean by " a big country means sometimes..."  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I was a few times in Canada and it is in fact a huge country.
Yeahh, Vancouver must be very expensiv regarding buying house ect., as far as I know is Vancouver known as one of the best cities to live in Canada.

Thanks for the hint Aloges, and for sure I will take a deep look into that book  Big thumbs up

Average salary in the UK is about £21,000 (USD $33,000). Average salary in London is £31,000 (USD $48,000). Average salary in the North of England is about £14,000 (USD $22,000). You can see now why the South of England is much nicer than the North. And as for Scotland - don't even get me started.....

Luxair, life is not expensive in Lithuania, but it will become more expensive when we'll join EU (certain more taxes will be imposed, etc. - for example price of bananas will rise over quadruple). As for wages, one third of working population is getting minimum wahe of 450 Litas (150$ per month), but many of them actually gets some kind of bonuses, this is done to avoid not so small taxes (about 37% of wage overally).

My impression is that most university graduates in Mexico City earn from $800 to $2,000 USD per month. Except for Monterrey this could safely be considered the highest pay in the country. There are individuals who make more than $4,000 a month, but we are talking about top execs and much less that 1% of the population.

Well,

For a typical teen living in the United Sates, it's safe to say you will make around 6-7 bucks an hour. But I'm lucky as I have a job which pays me 16 bucks an hour....

As for adults, it's 75% who you know, and 25% what you know for a good paying job.
