We have higher wages, a higher minimum wage and our wages are inflated a lot from the mining sector.
Americans make about 50,000 US dollars and aussies at about 80,000 Aussie dollars a year.
With conversion either way, There isn't too much of a difference AND we pay more in taxes.
Truth is, housing is simply more for us whether we like it or not.
