Want To Feel Really Poor? Here Is How Much Salary The PMs Of The World Take Home

 Here is approximately how much the Prime Ministers of the world earn.

Disclaimer: The currencies were not converted to retain the salary rates when these PMs came into office.

Let’s get one thing off the table, every world leader gets paid more than you. It is a different argument entirely if they are deserving of it. But Prime Ministers also have a longer job profile than you. Their responsibilities and pressures are immense, compared to say a writer like me.

If every day you count the chutta you give to your suttawala, guess what, you are about to feel more broke. These Prime Ministers earn a lot! The biggest perks are that they don’t have to pay for housing.

The minister’s salary varies across the countries. Some get paid better than the others as the trend goes.

#1. Lee Hsien Loong, Singapore


#2. Angela Merkel, Germany


#3. Theresa May, UK


#4. Narendra Modi, India


#5. Justin Trudeau, Canada


#6. Malcolm Turnbull, Australia


#7. Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand


#8. Shinzō Abe, Japan


#9. Édouard Philippe, France

 #10. Dmitry Medvedev, Russia


#11. Mariano Rajoy, Spain


If these numbers don’t make you question your salary, I don’t know what will.
