On July 1 2014, the minimum wage for a single worker without children will be net 891 Liras monthly, which is approximately 306 euro. The country’s minimum wage is updated twice annually. In the first half of 2014, it was net 846 liras. Overall the minimum wage has been raised by 5.3%. But access to a minimum wage is an enormous problem as millions are deprived of even 891 liras monthly because they do not have jobs. The population over 15 is roughly 57 million but only 25.5 million of them have a job that brings income.
