Minimum wages per hour in U.S. dollars:
   None    $0.00-$1.00    $1.01–$2.00    $2.01–$3.00
   $3.01–$5.00    $5.01–$7.50    $7.51–$10.00    $10.01–$16.88

This is a list of official minimum wage rates of the 192 United Nations member states excluding South Sudan, which gained independence in July 2011, plus the Republic of China (Taiwan), Northern Cyprus, Hong Kong, and Kosovo. Some countries may have a very complicated minimum wage system; for example, India has more than 1200 minimum wage rates.[1]

Methodology[edit]

The minimum wages given refer to a gross amount, that is before deduction of taxes and social security contributions, which vary from one country to another. Also excluded from calculations are regulated paid days off, including public holidays, sick pay and annual leave.

For the sake of comparison, an annual wage column is provided in international dollars, a hypothetical unit of currency calculated based on the purchasing power parity of household final consumption expenditure. For calculating the annual wage, the lowest general minimum wage was used.

 GermanyNone; except for construction workers, electrical workers, janitors, roofers, painters, and letter carriers. Minimum wage is often set by collective bargaining agreements in other sectors of the economy and enforceable by law.[8] In July 2014 Germany began legislating to introduce a federally-mandated minimum wage that would take effect on 1 January 2015.[87]

The law states that paying a worker an "immoral wage" is illegal. There is no general consensus what constitutes "immoral" payment. One judge at a court in Krefeld, Germany, ruled that a cashier at a supermarket has to earn the equivalent of approximately 7USD per hour. The federal courts in Germany ruled that any wage lower than 75% of the average wage or salary for a specific occupation constitutes illegal payment. However, since there is no well defined legal minimum wage as of February 2013, courts usually have the final say and only rule for individual cases.[88]
