Reader feedback: But what about living costs?

Re: Study: Slovak PM earns the least, May 15 - May 21, 2006, Volume 12, Number 19

Please, Eva, remember one thing before complaining about your financial situation. Living costs in Slovakia are also below average.

My Slovak family can afford more at home with their salaries than I can here in Denmark. I might have more to spend when in Slovakia, but they are mostly better off than I. There are two reasons for that: Denmark has higher costs than anywhere else and higher taxes, especially in the south.

Jesper,
