Every year, Eurofound compiles a report summarising the key developments in minimum wages across EU countries. The report explains how minimum wages are set and describes the role of social partners, covering the evolution of statutory rates, collectively agreed wages and the national debates on these issues.
Between 2020 and 2021, against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, minimum wages were raised cautiously in most Member States. This year’s report will monitor whether these rather moderate increases continued between 2021 and 2022 or whether more generous increases occurred as the economic situation improved. The report will explore the extent to which COVID-19 continued to influence minimum wage bargaining and whether social partners and governments have taken other topics, such as growing inflation, into account.
