    Off the top of my head, here in New Zealand it's currently around NZ$9 an hour. That translates, at present, to around US$6. Our dollar is floating though, so that's always subject to change. Depending on where one lives, living costs are either very high or not so much. In my home town of Wellington Rents are around $120 per week, but down here in Dunedin (term time res), my rent is $92 per week - the average is around $80 for student grade accomodation. Other expenses depend on how much you use phone, power, web, etc...

    Here in Vancouver B.C the minimum wage is 8$/hr, but cheapo Macdonald pays people who are under 18 only six bucks an hour. As for me I am getting paid 8.75$ per hour, getting a raise soon hehe

    London is friggin expensive. I don't know how the canadian dollar is right now, but against the american dollar, everything seems even more expensive.
    A personal pizza will cost 15 quid (30USD). Rents insane as well.
    CA was $6.75 last time i checked, but it might ahve gone up. MN is a sick $5.15

    Where do you guys find this information? All I know about wages in Norway, is that they are among the highest in the world.

    Don't you know your rights, John?

    Norway has no minimum wages. :) On the other hand, we make so much why the hell would we complain...

    Well, no, I wasn't sure. But it seems like LO wants to implement some sorta mimimum wages because of the workers we "import" and "exploit", mainly from Poland and the Baltics.

    Yeeah, that's typical. But hell.. not even youths here are paid much less than 125 NOK anyway. But I can see how the Polish strawberrypickers complain, damnit they almost work for free!
