A foreclosed American Dream has led many to drink in recent years.
The good news?
Americans work less for beer than any country on Earth, according to The Economist.
The handy graphic, readable even by those who’ve downed a cheap pitcher of Tuesday suds at Moe’s and Joe’s, reveals Americans work only 5 minutes for beer. For those bad at math, that equals a 12-pack per hour.
The next closest countries, the Czech Republic and Germany, may have better cheap beer, but they have to work two more minutes before enjoying one.
The poor (literally, sadly) folks in India have to work almost an hour.
The global average is about 20 minutes, according to The Economist, which got its data by dividing the retail price of a beer by the median wage of 150 countries.
Beer powerhouse Belgium is strangely missing from the list.
