Now we know why Belgian chocolate is so damned expensive:
Belgian workers are the most expensive in the Union at €35.6 per hour in costs for employers, including wages and social security, the EU commission says. Denmark, France and the Netherlands are also above €30. Bulgaria is the cheapest on €2.5, while the EU average hovers at around €22.
China is even cheaper than Bulgaria. No wonder then that the first Belgian choco factory in China is already in operation. Soon we will probably see a Chinese speaking Lady Godiva.
