  人们经常拿工资互相比较,但是你知道自己的工资在全球排第几吗?

  When it comes to wealth, we generally know how well we’re doing compared to our peers.

  当谈到财富的时候,我们只能大概知道和同龄人相比我们到底表现如何。

  But a new online tool enables you to see exactly how you rank on a global level - and the results are sure to be eye-opening.

  但是一个新的在线工具可以使得你准确看到自己在全球到底处于什么水平——而这些结果一定会让你大开眼界。

  The average US salary of $44,460, for example, puts you in the top 0.43 per cent of the world; meaning you earn around $23 per hour compared to a factory worker in Ethiopia, who makes just $0.25 in the same time.

  举例来说,如果你的年薪达到了美国平均44460美元的话,那你就已经是全世界前0.43%的人了;这意味着你每小时能赚约23美元,而埃塞俄比亚一名工厂工人一小时只能挣0.25美元。

  Produced by humanitarian charity Care, the Global Rich List also reveals that an hour of that salary can purify enough water to last a child for 77 days elsewhere in the world.

  这份《全球财富排行榜》由人道主义慈善机构“Care”发布,该榜单还表示23美元的时薪可以在世界其他地方净化足够的水源,供一个孩子使用77天。

  An hour’s average salary could also pay for a trained midwife to deliver two babies safely in a developing country.

  这一时薪还相当于发展中国家一个训练有素的助产士安全接生两个孩子的收入。

  Look at higher wages and the numbers become even more startling.

  看着那些高工资和数字更加令人惊讶。

  Taylor Swift, for example, is one of the highest paid artists and has earned $170 million in one year.

  比如说,霉霉是收入最高的艺人之一,一年赚了1亿7000万美元。

  That would put her in the top 0.0001 per cent of wealthiest people in the world.

  那使得她成为了全球前0.0001%最富有的人。

  This means she would earn an average of $88,541 per hour - enough to purify water for impoverished children to last them for more than 808 years.

  这意味着她平均每小时能挣88541美元——这些钱可以净化足够的水源供贫困孩子使用808年!

  An hour of her salary could also pay for a trained midwife to deliver 10,625 babies safely.

  而她的时薪还相当于一个训练有素的助产士安全接生10625个孩子的收入。
