“I would like to move to London, but how much do employers pay in London?”
This is one of the questions everyone asks before leaving. Everyone knows that life in London is very expensive, so it is natural to wonder how much money you need to have in your pocket before leaving and how much is needed to live in this city.
The price of living in London obviously, as well as in the rest of the world, it varies from person to person: it depends on the vices that one has, on the habits and necessities.
In England, workers are more protected than in many other countries, especially regarding the financial aspect:In fact, a law is in force that ensures a minimum wage to all workers (calculated gross and not net), regardless of their performance at the workplace and the performance of the company.
This is also one of the many reasons that push people to move to the UK, the so-called “land of great opportunities and meritocracy”.
It’s true, in London, the chances of finding jobs compared to other countries are actually higher, but it is important to pay close attention to the kind of work that is offered to you, given that often an illegal wage is paid which – obviously – does not ensure the Minimum Wage.
