Don't forget to take into account that most U.S. workers make less per hour than folks in other countries. Minimum wage in the U.S. is only $7.25 per hour. First:
Edit: Just did a quick Google search and see that "Last week, the lower house of Parliament in Germany voted to set a nationwide minimum wage of 8.50 euros an hour, about $11.60 (USD), effective in 2015. The upper house is expected to approve the measure this week."
That's a 60% increase over the minimum wage in the U.S. Not that everyone makes minimum wage of course.
A product has a value (production+logistics+r&d+ etc.) that is (edit:) almost independent to the market you sell it.
Sales strategy is something different.
Please also goole up not only the gross but also the net income after all taxes, social insurance and also the costs for rent, living, etc.
(I'm not willing to do so. It's your argumentation.)
So your comparison isn't one. I can find no argument.
+1, and furthermore, in Bulgaria, which is also in the European Union, the minimum wage is about USD 215 per month
, the average one is about USD 400 per month
. I don't see the prices being 10 times cheaper than US, on the contrary, they are the same as in all Europe
