WageIndicator Foundation - Minimum Wage

WageIndicator Foundation aims to assist individual workers and employers with real wage data during negotiations and job search; workers, employers and labour inspectors with comprehensive insight in national Labour Law, and how to comply with the law; and individual workers and employers with problems of daily working life. The national WageIndicator websites function as online, up to date labour market libraries for workers, employers, governments, academics and media alike.

WageIndicator publishes minimum wage rates as gazetted from 145 countries. The rates are published in English and the national language. To collect this data, WageIndicator regularly checks with the government (Labour Ministry/Department) or wage-board websites. WageIndicator also has staff who monitor wages.
