'Where are you on the global pay scale ?'

  1. "Do you earn more or less than the world's [monthly ?] average wage ?
    The average wage, calculated by the International Labour Organization, is published
    here for the first time. It's a rough figure based on data from 72 countries, omitting
    some of the world's poorest nations. All figures are adjusted to reflect variations in the
    cost of living from one country to another, and as Ruth Alexander of BBC radio's More
    or Less programme underlines, it's all about wage earners, not the self-employed or
    people on benefits."
    top of the list - Luxembourg $4,089 . World average wage: $1,480
