        The australia minimum wage even with the low dollarydoo value is significantly higher than almost every part of the US except maybe NYC. In some cases its double. I'm guessing it only goes up from there as far as better paying jobs.

      Americans get arrested for wearing their jeans the wrong way, collecting rainwater, crossing the road, feeding cats and not paying their dog licence. Children get criminal records for throwing paper planes in class, handed to them by the school's private police force. It's in the process of barring the presidential frontrunner from the next election, just to keep the senile incumbent stooge in place, like you'd expect to happen in some 3rd world shithole. You delusional people really need to accept just how laughable you look to the rest of the world lol

      Pretty accurate but please for the love of god do not come here for the beaches. The beaches in Aus are absolute shit. Lived here my whole life and I've been to the beach less than a dozen times, unless you know someone that knows an actually good location there's no point. They are filthy, completely overcrowded, you can only swim in about 20 metres of beach because of the lifeguards and everyone is penned in there like a public pool. Go to Greece or if you do go to Aus spend a long time finding one and an even longer time going to one. No where here is designed for tourists despite. Despite tourist towns relying on tourists for income they are complete and utter c**ts to you and will say that to your face, Australia is the embodiment of America bad. It is also ridiculously woke, I don't think I know a single non family member that's conservative here and there's no middle ground, if you come here expect everything you do hear to be prefaced by "we'd like to acknowledge the traditional owners of this land on which we meet today, we'd also like to acknowledge elders past present and emerging" here is the official statement from the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies ‘Being welcomed to Country means that you are talking to your spiritual ancestors and you’re saying just let this person come through. We trust that they’re not going to do any harm on this Country and so do not harm them.’ It's fricking moronic. Kids are taught it in schools and you can't get on a plane train or website without seeing or hearing it(you get fricking popups now on websites). It's not a nice country to live in and I don't see any reason that anyone would want to be here.

        Australian cities are like US cities with the bad parts cut out of them... or at least the really bad parts, to the extent that Aussies I've met in the US have a hard time telling what parts of town to avoid because they simply don't deal with places where the average person on the street would rob you. And people who run them seem to give a frick about where they live.

        Australians on the whole though, are incredibly narcissistic, uptight, autistic about following rules and ridiculously politically correct which is the complete opposite of what the rest of the world thinks they're like. It's weird, while at the same time having the worst elements of US bro culture.

        you need to visit more beaches, in sydney alone, there are so many different beaches that you can pretty much find any kind of beach to suit your needs.

        likely your experiences were from the very popular ones, but if you venture outside of those you will find many fantastic, pristine, and remote beaches, within just sydney and surrounds alone. WA, QLD, and NSW are littered with these kinds of beaches

      Spent almost two weeks over there in Sydney and was my first time traveling abroad. Got there by myself and my online mate I met there and stayed with him. Guess I'll share my experiences. First off, coming from LA, Sydney was a lot more safe to walk in and was my first time using a metro system really. Will say that the people are pretty nice c**ts overall, didn't have any bad experiences but was a little surprised some were bewildered by my accent, figured they were used to hearing American accents. Security cameras FRICKING EVERYWHERE. Even on the roads going up north where there was nothing for miles, security cameras were propped up everywhere and thats not getting into even suburban areas that were also littered with them. I can tell you that the drive from LA to Vegas you wouldnt spot one out in the desert. People were in-general were really PC which was pretty strange (I didnt use any slurs to begin with but people using the term partner more than anything was strange cause gay guys here just say husband) cause just about all of them had a problem with the Chinese staying abroad or buying houses. Whether they were white aussie or indian (didnt meet any abbos or first peoples that you c**ts refer to them as), they all had a problem with chinks. Food was really good. Can only say the "aussie" meal I had was a HSP and was fricking awesome but I dont know how you c**ts can finish those things. People were really pierced up, even the girls that I knew that were really shy had multiple piercings which you don't normally see. Strangely, I was the only one saying c**t out of all the mates I was hanging with. Very strange, really. It was a pretty pleasant experience altogether, but seeing the rent costs, the rules, lack of religious places (am a catholic beaner), and PC culture hold me back from considering this a place to live. That and warhammer stuff is too expensive so frick that. Thanks for reading my blog post, c**ts.

        Majority of the population and the projected increased population is being herded into an area less than 1% of the total landmass.
        >Not Safe
        Violence is an every day occurrence and is continually creeping outside of the problem areas. Unlike America where you are actually allowed to defend yourself you are up shit creek without a ladder. Reminder home invasion is the most common serious crime in this country, as there is zero deterrent to armed robbery.
        Why just recently 4 armed burglars with a gun invaded a home of a couple, luckily the husband was able to get the gun off the burglar and shoot one dead. This no doubt caused psychotic criminal defence lawyers and the justice system psychic pain.
        Theres a case like this every day in the news and thats just what we are being told about. Its far greater than that.
        >rude foreigners
        are absolutely everywhere, gone are the years of friendly Aussies warmly greeting each other and tourists.

        are atrocious the road is full of drivers that can't drive that are mysteriously getting licences. They can't even follow basic road rules. Particular SUV drives and other large 4wd vehicles are over half the cars you see on the road now and they can't drive.
        >less consumer choice
        we have a tiny variety of choice as far as products go, you simply cannot buy some things here.
        You have to order them online.

          I've lived in most major cities in the Australia and some small regional cities, so I've got to see how life is across Australia over the years lately. If you want a city that is completely quiet, Adelaide is basically Silent Hill when it comes to traffic and people in the streets. Sydney is probably the busiest, but even that isn't that busy compared to other countries in the world.

          So far my favorites here are Melbourne or Adelaide, both feel pretty nice to live in.

      Stuff can cost a bit more but if you have a good enough paying job, you won't notice. Rent will frick you though, the cost of renting or buying a home is pretty terrible.

      There's fun stuff to do but it's mostly all within major cities or their surrounding areas. My personal suggestions would be living near Brisbane so you have access to the Gold Coast too, or living in Melbourne. Depends on what you enjoy really.

      Not sure where you're living man but house quality here is a lot better than the US. Prices are fricked for sure but I've never had any concerns about insulating, defects or termites in any house I've lived in.

      what about renting with room mates?

      Not only that but we also increased the requirements for verbal and written English and put new restrictions on student visas. Indians are losing their minds about it because the majority of them won't rank high enough for the requirements.

      At least the government taking that much of my income in taxes is probably something I'll never have to get angry about (though I'd rather I would)
      My tax is 9.4%

      Tax here depends on what income bracket you're in. If you earn really high income, you get taxed a lot more. Lower-middle income earners (between 45-60k) get taxed around 10-14% and usually you'll get your money back at tax time if you're earning under 50k because you're considering a low income earner.

      You can also claim a lot of stuff on tax.
      Had to pay for laundry liquid to clean your work clothes? You can claim it.
      Had to buy work clothes? You can claim it.
      Stuff like that pretty much. Obviously you can't claim something like fuel to get to work though.

      Well one advantage is that Japan is not that far about 9 hours away and the Australian dollar goes fairly far when traveling there even on an average salary.

          Flying to Japan from the west coast of the US takes 11:30hrs, so 9 hours is a strange thing to b***h about. It's also anywhere from 12-15 hours from anywhere in Europe.

            9 hours isn't meaningfully shorter compared to 11. That's like one less trip to the lav. It takes 9 hours to get from California to Tahiti fwiw, which is seen as too far for a lot of people... Prices for nrt to syd or back are high, at least according to google and there's not many direct flights. Flights to BKK, however, are cheaper and more plentiful than flying from the US so you guys win that one.

              I'd say almost 3 hours difference is pretty significant. And if you were coming from the east coast of the US, you'd be in for 15 hours at the very least since you have to fly across the US first and then stop in LA to change.

              >Prices for nrt to syd or back are high, at least according to google and there's not many direct flights.
              Not sure where you're looking but it's pretty cheap. Flying from Aus to Tokyo with return flights and a hotel included for 4 days is only about $1700AUD all up (so about $1200USD I think). Even going over for about 2 weeks with return flights and a nice hotel is only $4kAUD.

                You can get LAX-NRT flights outside of peak times for under $800 usd. If you're smart about booking you can you can go for under $500 r/t though these deals are less prevalent than before covid. That's a direct flight, no 5 hour layover in Singapore or ICN. Not sure about hotel bundles but $1200 would be a price for Chicago to Tokyo.

                For me, the difference between a 9 hour and a 12 hour flight is basically nada on a direct flight.

                The more important consideration is time zones, which Ausfailia clearly wins on in terms of travelling to Japan.

                Currently:

                +1 hour for Adelaide
                +2 hours for Melbourne/Sydney

                Adelaide, Melb and Sydney do daylight saving, so they will all roll back by 1 hour in April and be almost in line with Japan. Brisbane doesn't do DST so they are always only 1 hour ahead of Japan.

    Think about all the hours you’d have to work in America to earn enough money to segregate yourself from every troublesome ethnic minority, weird lefties etc and remove that impetus

    Net full time wages in both c**ts are about $60kUSD(not including super or 401k etc), prices are about 10% lower in aus on average at current exchange rates, if you have $500k on hand to invest in property off the bat you’ll cut down your taxes and live a comfortable life

    Having been to most first world countries the only cities id genuinely prefer to have been born in or migrate to if language wasn’t an issue over Melbourne is Geneva and Zurich, NYC,Bay Area, Seattle and NC have too many problems to offset the income gains and the only other s tier c**ts are places like Singapore or Qatar and Lichtenstein

      There's a lot of states in the US where average incomes hover around 30-40k... But prices n those places are much lower than Australia and much lower than places like Seattle. Houses are still $250k and under, gas is under $2.50/gal, food is really cheap, etc.

      Australians work a lot less though. The amount of paid time off you get there would be insane for even Americans at the executive level let alone the wagie level.

      Your point is valid for people on average wages. However it's quite easy to make great money here with relatively low barriers to entry. I have no qualifications, didn't go to uni and have been making 150k+ AUD for the last few years in a sales job. Only place I could make similar or more is the US but they work like dogs over there. Here I work 9-5 90% of the year, take 6 weeks off a year, and live in safety.

      We have plenty of problems of course. The women here are mostly terrible & entitled. Our property market is one of the biggest rorts in the world. It's a c**t to travel anywhere beyond Asia. Our economy is a glorified banana Republic. etc etc

      Like any developed country, life sucks if you don't have much money, but Australia at least has easy ways to make money compared to other similar qualify of life nations.

          "The researchers note that the stereotype of whites is that they are prejudiced, intolerant, and callous."

          Is this the "racism" you are referring to? Or simply that Australian cities are ethnically diverse?

          Are you saying that white people in Australia experience discrimination because they are "white"? Or do you feel that people other than whites have taken your job etc. this is a very old form of thinking.

          "One in six migrants are paid less than the national minimum wage according to a new report by the Grattan Institute, which says governments have failed to stop exploitation of migrant workers with sexual harassment, bullying, and unsafe working conditions also rife."

            As they should be. Migrant workers should only be for jobs that no citizen would do under any circumstance and in such cases, as they have no use to the country besides slave labor, they should be treated like the Belgians treated rubber plantation workers.

    Australia was a British colony (it could have easily have been French) where white settlers eventually "tamed" the land (at the cost of many Indigenous lives, and with the help of Indigenous stockmen).
    The British imported sheep and Merino wool became a huge industry.
    The first wave of migrants were British (the "ten pound Poms" -- ten pounds for the boat trip).
    In order to build the country's infrastructure (hydroelectric power) migrants were invited from Italy and Greece who also established Melbourne's world famous coffee culture.
    There were already: Afghan cameleers, Chinese merchants during the gold rush, Europeans from prisoner of war camps.
    Vietnamese refugees were accepted the 1970s on humanitarian basis, also enriching the food culture.
    An official "multicultural" policy has made Australia a mix of Anglo and ethnically diverse population.

    From the Australian Bureau of Statistics:
    Key findings
    In 2020, there were over 7.6 million migrants living in Australia. This was 29.8% of the population that were born overseas. One year earlier, in 2019, there were 7.5 million people born overseas.

    Nearly every single country from around the world was represented in Australia's population in 2020.

    England (980,400) continued to be the largest group of overseas-born living in Australia. However, this decreased from just over a million, recorded throughout the period 2012 to 2016.
    Those born in India (721,000) were in second place, with an increase of 56,300 people.
    Chinese-born (650,600) fell to third place, with 17,300 fewer people.
    Those born in Australia (18.0 million) increased 211,400 during the year.

    Australia's population by country of birth:
    Historically, more people immigrate to, than emigrate from, Australia thereby adding to the growth of the national population. The various waves of migrants from numerous countries over time, have had an important effect on the diversity of Australia's population.

    High levels of immigration in the years before 1891 resulted in 32% of the population enumerated as overseas-born in the first country-wide census in 1891. In 2020 the proportion of Australia's population born overseas was 30%.

    On balance as a western economy society Australia is pretty fair, as long as you have money. The different cities have their own personality. Melbourne and Sydney are increasingly hectic, busy, many many tourists.
    Adelaide is quiet, a bit posh but with some poor suburbs. Canberra has highest average income and is a "designed" garden city.
    Hoon drivers are common all over and there is an increasing trend for drivers of stolen vehicles to run away after a crash.
    Australians love giant utes they are the biggest selling cars.
    Overall people are pretty easy going.
    Zoomers love dressing up and going out.
    I think Aussies kind of take it for granted how good they have it (even with rental crisis expensive real estate).
    They expect big car big house holidays etc.
    Because of my introverted nature none of this appeals to me. So it has always seemed a bit weird. Having said that, no-one cares what you wear how you look you can be as "individual" as you want.

      Pretty good rundown of the cities. Canberra is also pretty nice, I don't know why people shit on it so much.

      >Australians love giant utes they are the biggest selling cars.
      The amount of Chevy Silverados and Dodge Rams I've been seeing in recent years is insane. But they are seeing genuine use though since farmers move a lot of shit around and I do see a lot of tradies hauling shit from Bunnings in them.

      >I think Aussies kind of take it for granted how good they have it (even with rental crisis expensive real estate).
      True enough. I sometimes think about how things are here, but then realize just how terrible places like the UK or France or the US are.

      Australia feels safer than the US does, I love how the US was and all the stuff it has, but you also never knew just how unhinged someone could be and if they're carrying. I don't really get that feel here and even the really shitty people in really bad suburbs can be defused by just being chill and not antagonizing.

      I've lived in Perth for most of my life. It's not worth visiting - the CBD is boring and full of homeless people, and the rest is just exceedingly ugly suburbia. The only things I'd recommend are the beaches and Fremantle, which has a nice colonial port vibe to it and some fantastic architecture.

      If you must visit then use it as a stopoff point for visiting the South West and Great Southern regions, which are genuinely beautiful places.

    I've never been to Australia, but my impression (American) is that it's a huge desert island that's far away from everything, but the cities are pretty safe and clean with Anglo sensibilities (similar to Canada but hot?)

    Because of that, it would be cool to see the wildlife and be on the opposite end of the world, but I can't bring myself to purchase a $10k plane ticket to visit there because culturally I don't think it brings anything unique to the table.

    With that said, I'm sure it's very safe there and I'd have a great time if I were to travel for business; however, as a tourist, I'm just not convinced it's worth the trip. Sorry!

        Having been to USA, Canada, UK, and being an Aussie, I can say that these countries are all very Americanised and despite some minor cultural differences are rather samey.

        I think Australia is the best of these countries to live in. Not perfect and previous anons have made accurate statements about its drawbacks.

        I think the Yanks are pretty good sorts so wouldn't mind more of them in Australia, but that's just me.

            It seems like every western government is bringing back feudalism. Australia is a society where everyone who earns under 200k is a serf who has to mingle with each other, and people who earn more than that get to live in their own bubble and never have to interact with poors.
            And the poors will never be able to rise up, because they're as racially diverse as possible, with some of the worst races, e.g. former child soldiers from Sudan who are violent towards Australians, Afghans who don't care about doing their work properly so houses are built poorly, the list goes on.

              This country used to be a land of equality with a distinct lack of classism, it didn't matter if someone was rich or poor.
              Now theres a growing divide between people who have lots of money and some money or no money but the legacy of an equal society remains. There is little actual social benefit to being wealthy here but that is causing the wealthy to naturally become annoyed.
              the friction in this country is going to come from imported people believing they are Nuevo rich and entitled to greater levels of respect than they actually deserve.

                I remember in grade 3 (2001) we were taught about 'multiculturalism' and how great it is. My school was pretty diverse at the time, but the kids in my class were children of immigrants from Europe who came here by boat on their own accord, not because some shady government agency brought them all here. That really took off in the 2000s. Lots of Afghans, Africans, etc. People who just don't assimilate into Australisn society at all. It's an intentional recipe for disaster and this country is only going to get worse.

      The biggest problem in Australia is housing is a complete fricking rort. It's one of the most expensive housing markets in the world and what you get in return for your $1 million dollars is the equivalent of a cardboard box.
