2. Re: weekly wage

I was speaking to a security guard on a coach to cairo a couple of years back and he said that he earns the equivalent of £30 a month which he said was about the average wage for Egypt.He stated that where he lives,in a small village,he,his mother and his sister can live very comfortably on his wages.The barmen in the tavern get about £100 a month which obviously is above average for egypt but probably average for that job.These wages will have gone up now but not by much.The ones who must really be coining it in will be the reps who make on the visa's and the rip off taxi drivers.The cost of living in rural egypt,where most of these people live when not working,is unbelievably cheap.

Yes they do rely on tips....and I would think they would be very low down on the tipping chain.....

Security at the Hilton told me they get the equivalent of between £30 and £40 per month in wages. They work long hours for that though!!
