EU Sources - Eurofound reports on minimum wage development - February 28, 2017

Eurofound provides in an article information on statutory minimum wage levels, how the minimum wage has been determined for 2017 and minimum wage coverage across the EU. In 22 out of 28 EU Member States, a generally applicable statutory minimum wage exists; the level of this minimum wage varies greatly from one country to another. In the majority of EU Member States where there is no statutory minimum wage, the minimum wage level is de facto set in (sectoral) collective agreements. The data show that the minimum wage grew more in 2016 than in 2015. The article investigates the statutory minimum wages in a given country and not limited to specific sectors, occupations or groups of employees.
