Default Minimum wage in your country?

I just read that, minimum wage in Switzerland is 3000 EUR per month by now. WTF, life is just not fair Lucky you Swiss mates. Although the life is probably really expensive over there, but with very low population, it must be a great life. 3000 EUR, and it is minimum, cashier in the supermarket, cleaner in the house getting this money.. Middle class should be getting around 4000-5000. Just wow.

What is the minimum wage in your country, and are you happy with your job/life/economic status?

It is around 400 EUR per month here in Turkey, (which you can't pay less to your employee regardless of the job). Well, i'm still studying at the uni (last year), and also doing paid intern (getting 410 EUR). My aim, though, at least getting ~1500 EUR in my job, in following years to live a decent life. I'm ok and hopeful about the future.

What about you?

I just came back from Turkey and the standard of living had really gone up there. Long gone are the days when we could go there and come back with our bags full after shopping.

here the minimum wage is 156 euros, the lowest in Europe. But also life is quite cheap so with 2 salaries if 250-300 € a family can live normally (of course forget having a car or doing vacations abroad)

There is no minimal wage in Switzerland, not on a national level at least... We had to vote not long ago to implement a minimum wage at CHF 4000 (3320 euros) a month but it got refused.

EUR 175 in Serbia, officially at least, I wouldn't be surprised if unofficially there are many people who work for less.

Sorry, saw this on internet. So there is no minimum wage officially? I see. But it is around 2500-3000 EUR right?

It depends on your job and the canton you live in.

For instance, Geneva and Zurich - some of the most expensive cities in the world - for the most "basic" jobs like cashier, it will be around 3'500-4'000 CHF (around 3'000 euros) if you work at 100% (~40 hours/week)

Not sure about this. The average monthly wage per household is around 6'000 euros, but some 60% actually earn less than that.

Btw, is that sum net (after taxes and all) or gross (before)?

Default Re: Minimum wage in your country?

300 eur in poland on a job contract, but people on civil law contract (without any pension, health insurance) can work for even less.

i think 400-550 eur is what most people earn here (me included). two people with 500 eur salary can rent or buy flat on 40 years credit lol and live a quiet ok life. 1500-2000 eur salary makes you quite rich here that's what my mom earns as a lawyer on state job. also some engineers, programmers, doctors, architects, high profile creative jobs in warsaw (such as PR agency creative director)

which is quite sad, given that prices aren't that much lower than in western countries and some things are actually more expensive. for example, in wroclaw, people who haven't got married yet, rent rooms because they can't afford flats. and we talk even about people with degrees, not some street cleaners.

Depends whether you're paying your own rent and bills etc. If you have to pay all that, with 400€ you will barely have enough to eat.
