Default Re: How much is minimum wage where you are?

We don't have a set minimum wage per say in Sweden, it's more of an understanding between the employees/unions and employers that collectively set the minimum wage for a set profession, it's a bit flimsy and I don't know all of the details, but I know that I could have done with much less of what I earn today had the taxes been much lower (as in not having to pay for all made up government funded programs and services) but most swedes and unions disagree with me on that point (my parents are no exception) and would much rather have higher salaries instead of tax cuts that would benefit the whole economy (and my situation in particular) hence why I remain poor despite receiving my annual raise.

Not sure what the taxes in sweden are, but im having having a hard time believing you are poor because you are being taxed too much...

If your income is below average and you have high taxes and VAT on top of that, then yes, it gets expensive fast.

Just curious then, how much do you pay in taxes? % wise

If you make below average as you state, then you should have relativly low taxes (especially income tax), so why is it so much harder for you to get by, then the rest of the population that earn below average wage? Excessive spending?

The lowest the employer can get away with, pretty much.

If you're on minimum wage in the UK , you're nothing but a disposable piece of meat to your employer, they have no concept of how good working conditions increases productivity.

In Michigan it's $8.90, but it's increasing yearly.

Overall I think the wage is very good for our state. Especially since it's increasing yearly.


However, I will say that 95% of the employers out there hiring, pay above minimum wage. A lot of entry level factory/warehouse places near me pay over $15 an hour, ENTRY LEVEL (no skills required). And a lot of retail pay decently too. However, I wouldn't suggest getting into retail as a career, unless you are a store manager. (Walmart near me, they start at $10, and increase to $12 an hour after training. And Managers for departments make over $60k a year. Store Manager, well over $140k.)

Overall, I think the wage is fine. There is someone running for governor, and he is facing huge criticism for wanting to raise the wage to $15 an hour. (After 2 years, it would be $15). Democrats here are against him for it as well. He is really facing critisim since he owned a company of 300 employees and payed them minimum wage, the max he went was $10.

(Yes, he is a democrat).
