So my mother is convinced that the average salary in the UK is the exact same number as an average salary in the States. ( ie: 60,000 dollars average salary in the States is equivalent to an average salary of 60,000 pounds in the UK )
My aunt works as a vice principle in the states and makes 100K ( dollars ) a year. She wants to do the same job in the UK, and my mother has basically called me an idiot because I told her the average salary for that job in the UK is between 50-65,000 pounds - which is an excellent salary here from what I understand.
However, my mother, who has never lived outside of her home country, worked in the UK or been here other than a tourist obviously knows better.
