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.
