Minimum Wages in Italy

There is no minimum wage amount in the European nation of Italy, as the amount one is paid is agreed upon through collective bargaining agreements on a job to job basis.

Although 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, in Italy there is no minimum wage by law, and hence there is no separate legislation for that. Around half of the employees in the country are covered by a collective bargaining agreement, where wages are always set.
