The UBS survey of 73 international cities found that employees in Copenhagen, Zurich, Geneva and New York had the highest gross earnings. The undisputed champion in our international wage comparison is Zurich. Net incomes are higher there than in any other city in the world. With its extremely high gross wages and comparatively low tax rates, Switzerland is a very employee-friendly country. No other city in the comparison allowed workers to take home more income at the end of the month than Zurich and Geneva. A continental comparison of average incomes paints a different picture: on average, the worlds highest gross and net wages are paid in North America. However, there is a wage differential in North America as well. Wages in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago are significantly higher on average than in the Canadian metropolises of Montreal and Toronto.
