Correct Answer

Tell Me More

In the United States, McDonald's workers can buy about 2.4 Big Macs with their earnings from an hour of work, but this drops to 2.2 Big Macs in Western Europe, 0.8 Big Macs in Eastern Europe, and 0.4 Big Macs in Latin America. McDonald's workers across the world perform the same jobs with the same levels of productivity, but because they live in societies with vastly differing levels of productivity, these workers have vastly different standards of living.
