Check some of it, and see if it checks out with how much things cost in cali.

In what form? Bottled? I think bottled water is way too expensive in this country to be honest. It's fucking water for christ's sake. The water in my tap is the same as the water in "Farris", one of the most common tonics in Norway. It comes from the same source, yet I have to pay $3,50 for a bottle with some carbonation in it? Damn man.

We tax unhealthy food actually. Fruit and vegetables are cheap as fuck, while fast food is reeeeeeally expensive. Like, a big mac is $7.8 According to this article about how Norwegian big macs are the worlds most expensive: www.aftenposten.no/okonomi/Na-har-Norge-igjen-verdens-dyreste-Big-Mac-7448895.html

it's a marketing ploy used for decades now. lower the price by a cent and it's no longer $5.00 but $4.99. you see the four first and so the item registers as cheaper compared to the same item for one cent more. Eventually everyone adopted the system so it no longer works as intended but people don't like to break tradition.

Well, we tried to abolish that system ourselves, but some businesses still use it to this day, marketing things as for an example 19,95,- (,- is our $ basically). This doesn't make any sense though, because our lowest form of currency is 1 NOK, meaning anything rounds 1 up. We abolished the .5 (50 øre) like 5 years ago because it costs more to make it than it is worth, and it has no transactional value.
Btw, let's talk wages. I have a high school education and a proof of aprenticeship, currently working another aprenticeship, earning $20.5 an hour, 7 hours a day 5 days a week. That is deemed as a mid-range salary for a guy my age (19) with my education. What would the equivilent be in the states?
#71 - razamuliel (06/16/2015) [-]
with a high school diploma or GED (General Education Diploma) most people would be making minimum wage which varies between state. In California it's currently $9 an hour and most people are working 8 hours a day 5 days a week. there are other jobs that pay more but nothing above $15. I work 8 to 12 hours a day 4 days a week making $11.50 an hour which is pretty good for a kid my age (19).

Granted, we make way more money than you guys. I don't know if the prices are similar in that perspective, but I'm going to assume not, seeing as how we tax our gas at an extreme rate. For an example, a pack of cigarettes in Norway costs $14.1, where it should actually just cost about $5. It's taxed 200% because of health issues and other reasons, same as our alcohol.
