What is the Austria Minimum Wage?

Austria's Minimum Wage is the lowest amount a worker can be legally paid for his work. Most countries have a nation-wide minimum wage that all workers must be paid.

€1,200 per month is the accepted unofficial monthly minimum wage. Nationwide collective bargaining agreements set minimum wages by job classification for each industry. In occupations where no collective agreements exist (ie: domestic workers,janitorial staff and au pairs) regulation is by relevant legislation and wages are generally lower than those covered by collective bargaining. The national minimum wage laws are outdated,though still in force by convention. Austria's minimum wage was last changed in 1-Jan-2015.
