How late (and little) did you get paid this month?

One in two private sector workers in Greece get paid less than 751 mln euros per month… when they get paid, that is!

A million private sector workers get paid five months late, whereas a million private sector workers (45%) get wages beneath 751 euros per month. Ta Nea newspaper’s study shows that in 2012 only 17% of the workforce received wages under this amount. 1,400 work contracts signed in 2012 were reduced from 10-40%. Greater still were the wage reductions in group contracts, especially in small- to medium-sized businesses. 80% of these contracts were reduced to 586 euros per month.

The study did not take into account unpaid overtime.
