Porches of Dayton: Americana in the Midwest

America is the best place in the world for beer drinkers as the average worker earns 12 pints an hour
Thirsty workers who spend the day dying to escape to a bar have some good news - at least if they are in the U.S.
The average American employee takes just five minutes to earn enough money to buy a pint of beer - less time than in any other country.
That means that in the U.S., workers earn a full 12-pack of beer per hour, compared to a global average of only three pints for each hour of labour.
How long someone has to work to earn a pint is based on two factors - the average hourly wage, and the average price of a beer.
The U.S. has one of the highest hourly wages of anywhere in the world, and beer is cheaper than in many other rich countries.
