Bitcoin’s price recovers on news that digital money giant Paypal will support it. BIG news in the cryptocurrency world, which hasn’t had much of that lately.

$21/hour sounds good.

Yeah, but whatever they say about Germany is wrong. There is no minimum wage in Germany. :-/

So does that mean German employers get away with paying their employees $1 an hour or something?

No this graphic Is accurate. Atm in germany its 8,50 € or 10.90 $.

No, the graphic is WRONG. At least right now. I live in Germany and they just recently passed a law for a minimum wage of 8,50€ (about 11$, yes) which will come in effect in 2015, but until then, nope, no minimum wage yet. -_-

The lowest hourly wage I have heard of in Germany so far was 3€/4$ for some bus drivers in Bielefeld - and not much more is common for hairdressers in Berlin. It’s about time a legally binding minimum was enforced.
I also don’t know if the comparison above works - after all, the basic necessities are more expensive in some countries than in others. Denmark is a rather expensive country, for example, so a high minimum wage may not result in much more disposable income.

Clinton is giving bitches everywhere a bad name. I’d rather eat glass than treat her as a feminist icon.

Next fall Finland’s postal service publishes Tom of Finland’s homoerotic drawings as stamps. I guess that next September I will begin using snail mail again. 



They were published yesterday. Start hinting your Finnish friends that it would be nice from them to send you letters.
