Minimum Wages around the World

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!

  1. Michael,

    Thank you for the correction! I’ll have to fix that typo soon.

    You have a nice blog yourself. In fact, I took the liberty of adding it to my blogroll when I first started this blog up. I hope you don’t mind.

  2. Interesting post and a good blog. The U.S. minimum wage has been updated to $5.85 as of July 24, 2007 and will go up to $6.55 and $7.25 on on July 24, 2008 and July 24, 2009.
