Talking to an American fella at crystal peaks compairing the price difference on food and entertainment, cinema,  sports grounds admissions and fast food.  God we are getting well ripped in this country. Disgusting!  :rant:

Ask him how much he pays for medical insurance (If he can get it) and what he'd do if he found himself out of work.

...  also, just ask him how much mandatory paid holiday he gets each year.   

 

Grass is always greener and all that.

Food has always been cheap in the US because of the economy of scale as well as generally lower animal welfare and food standards. Also fuel is very cheap there which keeps transport costs down.

 

Things are cheap but everything else is very expensive in the states. Not a good place to be poor! 😕

With what they save on what I mentioned they can afford medical insurance.   And if out of work they can claim unemployment benifit and that would go further than ours.  :huh:

It's not called rip-off Britain for nothing though. A few years ago when we were stateside one of our friends over there was moaning about the price of gas/petrol which worked out at just over 50p a gallon when it was five pounds a gallon here.
