Minimum wages in Italy - 2019

According to Article 36 of the Constitution the wages must be proportionate to the quality and quantity of work done and also high enough to provide a minimum subsistence for the worker and his family. Italy has no minimum wage by law, and hence there is no separate legislation. Around half of the employees in the country are covered by a collective bargaining agreement, where wages are set.
