Belgium - Statistics on earnings - August 31, 2016

The statistical office has published detailed data and graphs (in French and Dutch) on the earnings in 2014. In 2014, full-time workers earned on average 3,414 euro gross per month. This is a relative average, since two-thirds of salaried employees earned less. In fact, half of employees earned less than 2,976 euro per month in 2014. Furthermore, 10% of workers earned less than 2,220 euro gross per month, and at the other extreme of the scale, 10% of salaried employees earned over 5,178 euro. The disparity in salaries between men and women continues to be a reality. Full-time women workers earned 6% less than men did. Moreover, when considering part-time work, which is mainly done by women, the gap reached 20%.
