Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Minimum wages for the majority of workers are set in collective bargaining agreements. However, a proportion of the workforce is not covered by these agreements or the agreed minimum wage is perceived as low. Therefore the German Trade Union, the Social Democratic (SPD) and the Green Party (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) press for the introduction of a €8.50 hourly minimum wage; whilst the Socialists (Die Linke) press for €10.00.

2. The German Government has now agreed to the introduction of a national minimum wage. http://newsroom.iza.org/en/2013/12/17/minimum-wage-germany/
