Living standard in Bulgaria has hit record lows that are not representative of the European Union as a whole.

The sad statistics are ranking Bulgaria in the bottom of countries with low living standard globally.

The minimum monthly wage in Bulgaria is lower even than the one in China's remote rural areas, according to experts from the International Labor Confederation.

Minimum monthly wages in various Chinese provinces range between USD 160 and 240.

In Bulgaria, after deducting taxes and insurance contributions, the net minimum monthly wage is EUR 96 or about EUR 3.6 a day.

The above amount is absolutely insufficient for survival, according to Sharan Burrow President of International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).

Rubbish..Most villagers have an apartment as well as a rural house.I'm sick and tired of hearing how poor Bulgarians are.You are lazy, ignorant,thieves that just hold out your hands for EU subsidies. However you don't want any of the responsibility that goes with it.

It is true that the rural Bulgarians are living in poverty. But they do now have the freedom to know they are living poverty. Freedom cannot be measured by money or wealth. But it is a sad choice to be free and die of hunger, than it is to be a slave and live to be fat.

Bulgaria today is just a geographic name.
After the Stolen Generations, children and territories of Bulgaria.
We are factually one country, but not actually one united nation.

So, and The Bulgarian Government Administrations do not feel obligated to take responsibility regarding the national care.

In the contrary the reason the United States is a powerful nation is because they are the only big country in the world whose inhabitants are UNITED from EVERYWHERE......

Majority of the Bulgarians today are just a fake image of the United Native Bulgarians Tribes and Ethnic People nations.

“Love United Bulgaria” just 1%++ …..............
