From talking to people they made very little in salary. Also looking in the newspapers salaries offered are very low also. And the pensions are ridiculous. From what I could see in the UK even skilled workers, those with education the salaries are abysmal compared to the US.
Yet prices are high there for items including food though they do have free health care. And the price of gas and public transportation in London is outrageous. Even the sizes of rooms-I have a girlfriend who lives in public housing there and her apartment room sizes are very very small. Other friends who own their homes the rooms are still quite small. I live in NY that is why when I go to London I stock up on their home decorating magazines because the rooms they decorate for "upper classes" are quite small.
That is why when the Europeans come to the US you see them buying suitcases and see them with bags of things because items in the US are so much cheaper.I think that is why the newspaper put wealthy Blacks because the average European could not afford to do this.
