EU sources -Pay in Europe in the 21st century -March 06, 2014

The Eurofound report Pay in Europe in the 21st century provides comparative time series on wage-bargaining outcomes across the EU Member States and Norway and investigates the different systems and levels of minimum wages in Europe at present, evaluating the implications of a hypothetical scenario of a minimum wage set at 60% of the median national wage. Collectively agreed pay remains an important driver of actual pay in many countries. In a majority of EU Member States, minimum wages are set by government regulation. Germany together with Austria, Denmark, Finland, Italy and Sweden are the exceptions, where minimum wages are set by collective bargaining agreements and do not cover all workers.
