Neknominate your minimum wage

We’ve been looking at how young people cope with making a living. After a long hard day at work, many people like relaxing with a cold (or if you in England…warm) beer.

But if you’re only earning the minimum wage, how many beers does it buy you around Europe?

You could have over thirty beers a day in generous Belgium, while in thrify Romania, you could only have six.

We’re not here to campaign against reducing the price of beer, but to increase the minimum wage. …and we’re not encourage anyone in Belgium to be drinking thirty beers a day…as good as the beer is that in that country!
