A handy cut out 'n' keep guide to EU wage minima

Borrowed from Eurostat, which I am sure won't mind too much. Original, plus more here.


For those who do not fancy peering at the map in detail, Luxembour leads at €1642, ahead of Erin at €1462. Bulgars are not allowed to get out out of bed for less than €123. The greatest relative difference in minima between two neighbouring countries is the €123 in Bulgaria and the €681 in Greece. If both are applying the rules on mobility of labour, it would be well worth Thracian office cleaners (say) doing a bit of cross-border commuting.

Meanwhile, the next time I hear anything positive said about the Nordic model by anyone left leaning, I will mention the lack of wage minima in Denmark and Sweden, and encourage any readers given the same opportunity to do likewise.

Looks like Sterling's demise is doing wonders for our international competitiveness. Long may it continue.

Shame about the unequal class widths, although splitting again at 1200 and 1600 would only affect two states it seems.
