# Minimum wage in China

Map of the lowest district minimum wage per hour in China's different provinces, 2013. The minimum wage in China ranges from ¥7.00–¥15.20, \$1.12–\$2.43, or €0.84–€1.82.

¥7.00–¥7.99    ¥8.00–¥8.99    ¥9.00–¥9.99    ¥10.00–¥10.99
¥11.00–¥11.99    ¥12.00–¥12.99    ¥13.00–¥15.20

As different parts of China have very different standards of living, China does not set one minimum wage for the entire nation. Instead, the task of setting minimum wages is delegated to the local governments. Each province, municipality, or region sets its own minimum wage in accordance with its own local conditions. According to the country's Employment Promotion Plan minimum wages are supposed to increase by at least 13 percent through 2015 and be no less than 40 percent of the average local wages. Minimum wages under such policies have increased by an average 12.6 percent rate from 2008-2012.[1][2]

## Minimum wage levels by jurisdiction

The table below lists the minimum wage by province, city, and district. The first column shows the province and the neighboring columns show the minimum wages at the district level. Provinces are divided into different classes of districts, Guizhou for instance is divided up into Class A, Class B, and Class C districts which each have their own minimum wage. For the dollar and euro information the conversion rates of US\$1 = RMB¥6.09 and EU€1 = RMB¥8.18 for 12 November 2013 were used.[3]
