An alternative Big Mac index

How many minutes to earn the price of a Big Mac?
Aug 20th 2009

THE size of your pay packet may be important, but so is its purchasing power. Helpfully, a UBS report published this week offers a handy guide to how long it takes a worker on the average net wage to earn the price of a Big Mac in 73 cities. Fast-food junkies are best off in Chicago, Toronto and Tokyo, where it takes a mere 12 minutes at work to afford a Big Mac. By contrast, employees must toil for over two hours to earn enough for a burger fix in Mexico City, Jakarta and Nairobi. Here image

Notice how different the UK Big Mac looks in the pic at the article from the US Big Mac.

Also, the last I was there, McDonald's didn't have any franchises in Nairobi. A quick google shows there still aren't.

I am passionate about orthodox Anglicanism, and passionate about fast food trivia. :)
