List of European countries by minimum wage

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following list provides information relating to the minimum wages (gross) of countries in Europe.[1][2]

The calculations are based on the assumption of a 40-hour working week and a 52-week year, with the exceptions of France (35 hours),[3] San Marino (37.5 hours),[4] Belgium (38 hours),[5] United Kingdom (38.1 hours),[3] Ireland (39 hours),[3] Monaco (39 hours),[6] and Germany (39.1 hours).[3] Most of minimum wages are fixed at a monthly rate, but there are countries where minimum wage is fixed at an hourly rate or weekly rate.

Minimum wages by country[edit]

Net income[edit]

The maps below show monthly adult income; some countries have a lower rate for under-25-year-olds.

Purple above €1,000
Light blue €500 to €1,000
Yellow €250 to €499
Red below €250

Countries marked on the map in dark red do not have a minimum wage.

Gross income[edit]

The maps below show monthly adult income; some countries have a lower rate for under-25-year-olds.

Purple above €1,500
Light blue €700 to €1,500
Yellow €400 to €699
Red below €400

Countries marked on the map in dark red do not have a minimum wage.

The difference between the gross income and the net income ratio is given by the percentage of income taxes. For example, even if a Slovakian citizen has a gross minimum income higher than a Czech, in reality the first will receive less money than the second because of higher income taxes.
