Quartz, a U.S.-based online website specializing in business-related news, reported on the emergence of a “Beer Index.”
“We are able to see how long it takes someone making the minimum wage to earn enough to buy a brew at a local bar,” Quartz reported.
Some minimum wages stack up pretty favorably against domestic beer prices, while others do just the opposite. In Georgia, for instance, it takes more than half a day’s work to pay for a pint. In Puerto Rico, it takes only 12 minutes.
