The average Google UK worker will take home more than Prime Minister David Cameron, The Guardian reports.
The Guardian’s workings were as follows: “Accounts for 2015 show that Google UK paid wages of £562million over an 18-month period, including £148million in share-based bonuses. Calculated on a pro-rata basis over 12 months, the salary bill works out at an average of £160,000 per head. It was spent on 1,075 marketing staff, 799 staff in research and development, and 455 managers and administrators. Two directors – one based in Dublin, another in the US – did not draw a salary from the UK company.”
