Without further ado, I present minimum wages from around the world. I obviously didn’t include every country in the world. However, I did manage to get at least a few countries from each of the main continents. I also included California which is not technically a country, but does have the eighth largest economy in the world by GDP.
Thanks to Alexey for giving me the idea for this post.
Correction: Michael Fox of Jottings by an Employer’s Lawyer has spotted a typo in my chart. The U.S. minimum wage is $5.85 per hour, NOT $5.15 per hour. And now it’s too late for me to go back and revise the chart due to my limited technical skills. Mea culpa!
