The highest wage among the EU countries is in Luxemburg, Ireland and Belgium.

According to the Eurostat, in Luxemburg minimum wage is 1,642 Euro, in Ireland – 1,462 Euro, and in Belgium – 1,387 Euro, "Narodnaya Volya" informs.

The lowest level of the minimum wage in the EU is in Bulgaria – 123 Euro, and Romania -153 Euro.

Belarus is a European country too. And every day we listen at the Belarusian TV that the life in the EU is very difficult. But let us compare their wages and wages in our country.

Since January 1 this year the government of Belarus has set a minimal wage: 229,700 Br, or about 57 Euro. Thus, Belarusians in their wonderful land with their wonderful leadership are three times poorer than people in the poorest country of the European Union, Romania.
