Serbia -Production workers paid less -October 15, 2013

The country has a serious problem with the low scale of its production. For instance, neighbouring countries Slovenia and Croatia have in average €40,000-60,000 a year per capita, while in Serbia it is €15,000. At the same time, the GDP of industry is 17%. When GDP of industry falls below 30% governments in other European countries tend to raise it as soon as possible, since everything below 30% is considered a serious problem in economy. Meanwhile, workers in production are less paid than the workers in the public administration. In production the average salary is €390, while in public administration the average is €508.
