Romania -Labour costs second lowest in the EU -May 05, 2015

Romania’s labour costs: €4.8 per hour

Romania has the second lowest labour costs in the European Union. A recent report by the German Federal Statistics Office concludes that Romania’s labour costs of €4.8 per hour are trumped only by Bulgaria’s €3.8. Romania’s labour costs are low both because of low wages, low social security contributions and low taxes. The average hourly labour cost in the EU is €24.40.
