Want to feel better/worse about your lot?
Take the BBC’s salary test and find out where you sit in the world’s pay rankings – just enter your country and monthly salary before tax (no one will know – its safe because it the BBC and when they say its okay, it okay).
The global average monthly salary is just under $1,500 (before taxes). That would just pay my mortgage. With nothing left for wine.
In the US the average is about $3,259, in the UK its just over $3,000 (that would just about pay the mortgage and the wine bill).
In Tajikstan its about $230 a month. But they aren’t allowed wine so its not a big problem.
