Yes thats relatively low however you have to factor in the context of the jobs pay ie.

the cost of living so it'll probably be around the same value.

if i worked 5 days a week then i would be rich to. but i can only work when a soccer match is played. so thats once every 2 weeks. which kinda sucks.

my job is dope though, i watch all the games for free and all i do is walk around the stadium telling other workers not to watch the game.

and a pack of 12 donuts from krispy kreme is something like 12, i think havent been in a long time.

Cost of living in Australia is fairly low.

Depending on where you are i guess.

Obviously the cost of living in London is very high.

I do a shitty job, and get more than $10 an hour, but yeah, all depends on the cost of living in your particular area.

i'm pretty sure sydney is in the top 15 most expensive cities in the world and melbourne, adelaide and brisbane somewhere in the top 100

Actually the cost of living in Australia is relatively high, for example here in Perth it is the 53rd most expensive city in the world and Tonearm is right Sydney is 15th and Melbourne 38th, that is according to the mercer study.

Comparatively the cost of living in Australia is more expensive than the USA bar a few cities eg. NY (only American city in the top 50 most expensive), and probably cheaper than Western Europe although that is a bit of a generalisation. I'd say but I might be wrong that the UK is a more expensive place to live and London definitely is given it's the 3rd most expensive city in the world.

hmmm
so what's the basis of this top? is it like prices in different cities compared in solid monetary units OR is it like a ratio between the average salary and the average prices and then the ratio compared to the one in other cities?

if i remember correctly oslo was up around the top 5 ... poor supreme mathematics ... tokyo was also in the top 5 i think

sydney is fucking ridiculous ... the funny thing is all the immigrants with no money try and move here and all the people who live here and try and move out - usualy to perth and brisbane and both have had an increase in the cost of living recently, especially in the property market

good old sydney ... not content with fucking our own city we try and fuck everyone else

You should know that study is meant for cost of living for expatriates but it's still a pretty accurate guide as for how it's worked out

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/6761487.stm

Kind of explains how the study works

Rent of flat Bus/tube ticket Music CD Intnl paper Cup of coffee Burger meal
Sydney 1,048 1.01 10.05 1.81 1.41 2.60


that implies that the rent of a unit is like $2,500 ... simply untrue ... it's like, $250-$400 ... the rest is pretty accurate although the cost of public transport is sky rocketing ... what used to be a $2.80 train ride into the city 4 years ago is now around the $6.50 mark ... fucking ridiculous when you consider how bad our trains are

LOL that article also says zimbabwe has inflation at 3,00% ... their economy went down so fast it's around 10,000,000% and experts believe it's actually around the 20m% mark

Pretty sure that's a monthly figure so that works out to be $1000 Aus a week which is still crazy money but not quite the $2,500 figure. Also thats for a luxury apartment

When I was travelling in the land of Oz with some American negro's we would go in shops.

I would be like

"this is really cheap"

And they's be like

"this is really expensive"

Lessons.

I get paid 7 p/hr for a shitty job.
