The article looks at developments in the minimum wage across Europe’s Member States. While minimum wages have often been frozen or seen only moderate increases during the years of crisis, the past two years have witnessed a cautious return in most Member States to growth in the minimum wage.

The Dublin based European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) updated its EurWORK Observatory of Working Life. The article looks at developments in the minimum wage across Europe’s Member States. While minimum wages have often been frozen or seen only moderate increases during the years of crisis, the past two years have witnessed a cautious return in most Member States to growth in the minimum wage. The lower level of inflation (or even deflation) means that the value of the statutory minimum wage increased in real terms as of 1 January 2015.
