It’s time for a butcher’s at EU salaries...
Britain’s chief execs are the highest paid in Europe, which is unsurprising given that since 2000 their dosh has gone from 69 to 149 times that of their average worker.
But if you’re a butcher or baker you might wish to emigrate once Brexit turns the UK into a developing country.
The EU pays more wonga for butchering and baking than the average £17,000 you’ll earn here. The relocation firm
1st Move International, which compiled the stats, didn’t include candlestick makers, sadly.
A French butcher gets £21,000 a year while a German baker has
£27,000 in dough.
A Belgian hairdresser really cuts it on £33,000, compared to a £25,000 British crimper.
An Austrian cleaner sweeps up £29,500, nearly double the UK’s £14,700 average while a German building worker gets £65,500 to a Brit’s £51,000, almost £3,000 a year less than the work pays in Italy.
Time to say auf wiedersehen, pet.
Apologies to Alan Sugar for saying here that he has only one O-level. Lord Sugar tells me he’s got six. You were more of a swot than I thought, milord.
