Labor Snapshot – how does one live?

What does a Georgian worker earn? In a good company (a well-earning mine), the more lucky workers earn 600GEL (a little more than 300USD) a month, for six 24-hour shifts. The work is fairly responsible. Mistakes entail environmental hazards. Holidays are not paid. On that level, some sort of normality can kick in. Still time to do odd jobs, do some farming, look after the garden.

Other workers in the company earn about 500 GEL, for longer work, but with a less demanding boss.
