Bangladesh repeats minimum wage

In 2019, the national minimum wage in Bangladesh remained fixed at 15.7 € per month, that is 188 euros per year, taking into account 12 payments per year.

If we look at the minimum salary in Taka, which is the official currency in Bangladesh, we can see that, this year, it was 1,500 Taka and accordingly, the national minimum wage has remained stable so workers have lost purchasing power in the last year.

If we look at the ranking of the national minimum wage that we publish, Bangladesh is in 96 nd place, so it is among the countries with the lowest minimum salary of the 100 of the list.
