The UK is raising the minimum wage for Birtish adult workers from 4.85 pounds to 5.05 pounds in October and 5.35 pounds in 2006. That's $10.22 an hour. (People aged 18-21 will make $8.11 an hour.) Tony Blair calls that a "powerful symbol of how [the UK is changing for the good." I call that a decent amount for an honest day's work. It's almost DOUBLE the $5.15 an hour workers get in the US.
