"in 2008, there was 13% of the French population that lived below the poverty line. But it also contains another, even more spectacular figure: the median annual income in France was 18,990 euros [about $26,000 or £16,440]. This implies that half the population lives on less than 1,582 [around $2,170 or £1,370] per month. Here is a truer picture of the other divide that is sapping French society. France is a wealthy country that panders to its richest citizens but mistreats its salaried workers.":

It would be very interesting to compare this data with another European countries.
