Minimum wage - NMW

Is the lowest salary that workers must receive for the legal working day.

The Minimum wage data we publish are monthly, assuming a salary of twelve monthly payments each year, for establish comparisons between different countries. Each country uses a different calculation method and establishes the NMW for different periods. Some countries establish a minimum wage per hour, others per working day, week, month, etc., and there are still many countries that do not have a minimum wage.

Update the minimum wage counteracts the inflation and is a good indicator of the standard of living in a country, like the average wage, GPD per capita and the HDI.

The first time a minimum wage was established in the 19th century in Australia and New Zealand.

In the table at the top you can compare the minimum wage in each country.

On this page, you can view the NMW of the different countries, (National currency and in Dollars or Euros) and sort from highest to lowest clicking “NMW” on the heading of the table. Click a country to access to the evolution of the minimum wage in that country.

It is interesting to compare the minimum wage with the average wage of countries. You can consult all the economic and socio-demographic data of the countries in Demographic and economy of countries .
