LOOK: What’s the Minimum Wage in Various Countries Across the Globe?

Where’s the best place to work across the globe, in terms of minimum wage? While there are, of course, a lot of factors to consider aside from the minimum wage, including the cost of living, taxation system, etc., it still sounds great to receive a huge paycheck, right?

The monthly minimum wages on this list are based on the ones declared by the countries and listed on Wikipedia’s “List of minimum wages by country” or the daily minimum wage multiplied by 20 working days. Take note that the actual minimum wages vary depending on the locality as well as sector/line of work the employee is actually doing. Also, some countries offer a different rate to ex-patriates and foreign workers.

Take a look at some of these countries and compare the minimum wage, in no particular order. In what country are you working in? How is the minimum wage in that country compared with the ones on this list?
