What is 1500 dollars every month? It is the average amount of money that a person earns for his work. Economists counted all the salaries which people get in the world and they came up with the average salary of 1500 dollars.

It is a lot of money for some people but very little for others. For example, in Kyrgyzstan the average salary is 350 dollars, which is just a little more than 10 dollars a day. In Luxembourg, the average salary is 4000 dollars, which is more than 100 dollars a day.

What is the average salary in your country? Are you above or below the world’s average?

It doesn’t matter where you live. You usually go to work and get your salary because you need money for your everyday life.

This is how life is seen by one Japanese artist.
