Thanks, Quartz, for releasing the above infographic which shows how many hours of minimum wage labor it takes to buy a beer in different countries around the world.

The Index shows that Georgia (15.1), Bangladesh (13.4), and Libya (7.5) are the three countries requiring the most hours of work to purchase a single beer. In other news, we think it’s time to move to Puerto Rico, where you only have to do 12 minutes of minimum wage labor to earn a brewskie.
