The average salary in the UK is between £18 - 26000 - the salary which most working people get. The cost of living in the UK is extremely high which is why so many UK pensioners have come to Bulgaria and why people on the salaries quoted above are having to go to food banks. The £56000 quoted is for middle class workers which are a reducing sector in British society which is becoming polarised into the extremely poor and the unemployed and the extremely wealthy - (usually foreigners)
An average salary in Bulgaria is about 400 euro dollars per month.
But that is my estimation.
It is a subject of statistical manipulations may be a little bit more or less.
Depends if you trust the statistics.
About 30% of the population for example the Roma community does not have an average salary at all.
