U.S. Workers Fastest At Earning That Beer

Posted: Updated:

Beer drinkers of America rejoice! Out of 150 countries studied, it takes the least amount of time to earn a beer in the United States, according to analysts at Swiss bank U-B-S. They determined it takes Americans just five minutes on the job to earn a beer. That equals 96 beers over an eight-hour workday -- or 480 beers over a 40-hour workweek. 


The analysis looked at median hourly wages and average beer prices at retail outlets like grocery stores or liquor stores -- not prices at bars. On average, it takes a typical worker of the world 20 minutes to earn a beer. Other countries do have cheaper beer prices than the United States, but median hourly wages are much higher in the U-S.
