List of countries by minimum wage

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

General minimum wage by territory, as of February 2023

This is a list of the official minimum wage rates of the 193 United Nations member states and former members of the United Nations, also including the following territories and states with limited recognition (Northern Cyprus, Kosovo, etc.) and other independent countries. Some countries may have a very complicated minimum wage system; for example, India has more than 1202 minimum wage rates for different types of industries and skill levels.[1] Meanwhile, other countries may have a national rate which often is superseded by state, provincial, cantonal, county and city minimum wage rates. For example, 33 states in the United States have higher minimum wages than the federal rate (plus military rates on federal bases) – on top of this an additional 42 city-level subdivisions having different minimum wage rates and 53 countries.[2] In effect, the United States has over 100 different minimum wages across the nation. This is common in federal nations such as Canada,[3] and minimum wage in China also has numerous different rates. In the table below, only the lowest minimum wage is cited, or the highest-level subdivision where it applies.

Methodology

[edit]

The minimum wages listed refer to a gross amount, that is before deduction of taxes and social security contributions, which vary from one country to another. Also excluded from calculations are regulated paid days off, including public holidays, sick pay, annual leave and social insurance contributions paid by the employer.

For comparison, an annual wage column is provided in international dollars, a hypothetical unit of currency calculated based on the purchasing power parity (PPP) of household final consumption expenditure. For calculating the annual wage, the lowest general minimum wage was used.

 Australia Most workers are covered by an award, which may vary by employee age, geographical location and industry. Workers receive mandatory employer loadings such as penalty rates or leave loading. Minimum wages are set federally by the Fair Work Commission.

For those 21 and older, not covered by an award or other instrument, (as of July 1, 2023) - the minimum wage is $A 882.80 (US$600) per week, or $A 23.23 (US$15) per hour.[23] Casual workers are paid a loading of typically 25%, resulting in a minimum of A$28 (US$18) per hour for those workers.

Workers under 21, apprentices and trainees not covered by an award, have a minimum wages set at a percentage of the ordinary rate.[24] For those under 16, this is 36.8% or A$7.87 (US$5.25) per hour; $A 9.83 (US$6.56) with the casual loading.[25]
