Almost half of young employees between 18 and 29 years old earn less than €500 net per month despite the laws for over 25 saying otherwise. In a survey conducted by human resources and job seekers website kariera.gr among 5,208 respondents aged 18-35, students and University/technical college graduates the results are:
Only 8% of young Greeks want oa job in the public sector
53% of young people wish to work in Greek company
45.6% (employees aged 18-29 ) earn net salary below 500 euros*
One in Two said that the economic crisis has affected his personal life
The most important reason for people to resign from a job is “lack of fairness” (84%), while on fifth position is “the salary” (69%).
The survey was conducted in April and May 2016.
*Unfortunately I have no more information but I suppose, the salary is for full time job. Minimum wage is 586 gross for over 25 and 510 gross for below 25. And it is worth noting, that also university graduates earn the minimum possible.
On the other hand, it is easy to exploit labor force as youth unemployment ισ 51.4%.
With less than 500 euro, it is hardly possible to start a family.
