I think that it's like $9-$10 here in my corner of Canada. I make just above at $11.30 an hour doing tech support at a call centre. I work around a 40-44 hour week and take home around $700 and change every two weeks after taxes. So about $1400 a month, or $16,800 a year. If I can find some place on the cheap I can afford to live on my own and have a little left over for spending money, but not much and god forbid I need something expensive like a new bed or car. Which I just so happen to.

In Poland, as of today's exchange rate, it's 455$ = 1500 PLN a month (1 PLN = 3,30$).

Although it's the government approved minimum wage, it's not always that high. In reality, it's around 1200 PLN after taxes, and the majority of the retired citizens and those who use social checks get a lot less.

In Canada it's $10/hour now, a standard work week is 40 hours. Minimum wage is mostly just retail/fast food/part time, if you are working anywhere full time, you are likely earning $15/hour at a minimum.

2 weeks vacation plus 11 public holidays through out the year that are paid, there are no specific number of sick days allowed, but there is no sick pay for most jobs, if you miss work, you don't get paid.

While we do have healthcare, employment insurance, government run pension plan, and a variety of other programs, our taxes are relatively high so that $10/hour minimum wage is certainly not what you receive on your pay.

We dont have sick days but we have legislative days (i think 3) were you dont get paid but your work cant count them/.

For 25's and over, British minimum wage is £8.21 an hour. That's £307.87 a week (working a 37.5 hour week) which equates to £16,009.50 a year.

I actually thought the National Living Wage was a different thing but it just seems like they rebranded the minimum wage.

In Norway there is no general minimum wage laws, but som professions do have them:

Construction 126 NOK ($14)

Maritime 162 NOK ($18)

Agriculture 123 NOK (on short term contracts) ($13)

Cleaning 187 NOK ($21)

Fishing: (it's complicated) 183 NOK ($20)

Electricians: 189 NOK ($21)

Gods transport 175 NOK ($19)

Passenger transport 158 NOK ($17)

Hotel, restaurant and catering: (it's complicated) 16-years old get 110 ($12). 17-years old gets 119 ($13) .and 18-years old get 134 ($15)

Edit: If you make less then $20 per hour, the pay is 100% trash

Edit 2: The reason why these professions have minimum vage laws has to do with hige amount of seasonal, migrant, and low skilled work. unions stand strong in Norway despite som forces in the current government. (maybe they see what is happening in France.

I was reading this thread for a while before I noticed it's a 7 years old necro.

Somewhere between 1000 euro

That's amusing.

Here in Ohio it just reached $8.70/hour this year. My retail employer hit $11.00/minimum, but we also have max wages ($15.00/hour for me).
