This is a list of official minimum wage rates of the 193 United Nations member states and former members of the United Nations, and also includes the following territories and states with limited recognition: Taiwan, Hong Kong, Northern Cyprus, Kosovo, and Palestine and other independent countries. Some countries may have a very complicated minimum wage system; for example, India has more than 1202 minimum wage rates.[1] Note this a current legislative minimal wage in the country for the current year and beyond, which still may be not in force, actual minimum wage may be lower. Also note that specialists workers are only directors (CEOs) of the companies.

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 the sake of comparison, an annual wage column is provided in international dollars, a hypothetical unit of currency calculated based on the purchasing power parity 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. For employees 21+ not covered by an award or agreement, the minimum wages is A$18.93 ($13.44 USD) per hour, or A$719.20 ($510.79 USD) per week; set federally by the Fair Work Commission. The figures indicated exclude mandatory employer superannuation contributions of at least 9.5% of the employee's total annual salary and any extra loadings received (e.g. many employees are entitled to an extra 17.5% of their daily income on days where they take annual leave, penalty rates for work undertaken on weekends and public holidays of up to 200% of their base rate, and the entitlement that non-permanent employees be paid at least 15% higher than the base rate of pay).
Workers under 21, apprentices and trainees not covered by an award each have a minimum wage level set nationally below the official minimum.[22][23] Minimum wage for workers under 16 is 36.8% of the 21+ minimum wage at A$6.97 ($5) per hour.[24]
