I just wonder where in the hell they get these figure from. I don't know anyone earning what they say the average wage is in NZ
I suddenly feel well off, I earn more than the average for NZ

I feel so much better for that, it seems I am considerably richer than I thought.. either that or it's a load of old cobblers.

It says the average monthly wage in NZ is US$2283 or NZ$33,377 p.a. at today's exchange rate, it's all too much for my brain figure out what it means or how they worked it out, but I can only assume those boffins didn't leave their office or actually test their theory.

Is that thing correct? For Canada it works out to $32688 a year and for NZ $27,396 - aren't those numbers just higher than full time minimum wage.
