And you say a lot of people abuse your social redistribution system, which is bad because the whole country cares for people who don't deserve it - Hungary basically should be called Cheatland. we're also ranked very high on lists about corruption around the world. don't even get me started on politicans, i hate all of them, they're all stupid and selfish. plus we're nowhere near being so discrimination-free as you guys are. so all in all, the system's effed up and it's gonna take a while until we climb out of this... and "funny" part is, we're still in a better situation than most countries in the Balkan.

No problem, I get that we're just having a convo and I like it.
Okay, well that is low. It is the same in Bosnia. But food, gas, rent etc is so much cheaper there than in Sweden so all in all in percent we get aalmost as much after we pay our bills, food and everything we need in our daily life (for example gas here is almost 2 euros / liter). Plus they have made the food prices much higher here over a 10 year period without raising our salaries to follow it. It might seem as swedish people are rich and live a wealthy life - they do if they're successful, working 24/7, basically. I'm definitely NOT complaining tho.
The average salary here is good, but we pay 33% in taxes, therefore the high standard. The problem here is that people who don't work get tax money for support for rent, food, etc, so that "everyone's equal" so that no one gets to live on the streets. Which is good of course, until people start abusing it. There are a looot of cheaters here.....
But I agree, the salary in Hungary is crazy low, and I think that the politicians in Bosnia are ***king idiots all of them. That's why my cousins are all over the world. People deserve a better life. I wish everyone had the chance to move if they'd like. Are you thinking about moving somewhere else?
i would like to leave, yes. the thing that was linking me to Hungary was my mom, who's basically my only family but now she's married and lives happily and doesn't need me so much i would be terribly homesick, i know. but Europe attracts me and honestly, you can't aspire to anything big here...
