The Amount of Minimum Wage Hours You Need to Put in Around the World to Buy a Beer

Beer is important, so is someone’s ability to purchase one. Although it is not a global constant, it makes for a pretty interesting image anyway. The folks over at Quartz have created a global index consisting of the average price of draft beer in several countries, and the hours a minimum wage worker would have to put in to be able to afford beer.

They got to the numbers by using the average price of the local brew divided by hourly minimum wage based off a 40 hour work week. The most affordable place for beer is Puerto Rico where working 12 minutes will give you enough money to buy beer. Last on the list is Georgia where you would have to work for more than 15 hours before you could earn enough to buy a beer.
