Forget Labour's GBP80,000: Britons only feel rich with GBP370,000 a year

If you thought Labour's pledge to hike tax for the wealthy, ie. those earning over 80,000, was unfair, it seems you're in the majority: a new study showed Britons only feel well-off with 370,000 a year.

The study, by salary benchmarking site Emolument, found professionals in the UK are up there with their counterparts in the US, who also said they weren't wealthy until they made 370,000.

That was followed by the French, who didn't feel well off until they hit 310,000 a year, while Swiss workers said the figure was more like 208,000. At the bottom end of the table was India, where locals felt well-off with a salary of 25,000.
