Ok, I just saw that the Australian minimum wage is $11.35 Australian Dollars per hour. That roughly converts to $6.40 an hour (US Dollars). Now my question is, does $11.35 AUS buy in Australia what $6.40 US does in US? Or are things a little different and do people in Australia just live a little better overall then Americans do here. I know they cant take a total hit on selling goods but I just wonder if you could actually live on minimum wage in Australia, or other countries.
