Report Released On EU Wage Changes In 2014

By Hans Esser, for 06 April, 2015

A report issued by the European statistics service Eurostat shows that wages offered by the countries of the European Union differ greatly.

Scandinavian countries offer the highest salaries, but they also have high rates of personal income tax. Denmark had the highest hourly wages of EUR40 (USD44) per hour.

At the other end of the scale, employers in Bulgaria and Romania offer wages of just EUR4 per hour.

Increases in wages during 2014 were most pronounced in Estonia, Latvia, and Slovakia.
