Buying a beer could be a huge investment in some countries
February 10 , 2014
Minimum-wage workers in countries such as Bangladesh find it a serious investment to grab a beer after work. A recent analysis shows that an employee must work for 13.4 hours in order to afford one beer.
Those in Georgia seem to have the hardest time since it would take them 15.1 hours of work to earn a drink.
Workers in Puerto Rico are in a better situation since they'd only have to work for 12 minutes to pay for a beer. US workers have to work twice as much and the rate is the same in countries including Spain, Taiwan, Canada, Germany, and Japan.
