When it comes to escape the nightmare of unemployment, one may grab all possible and impossible opportunities and even accept jobs with wages that let you come home with a loaf of bread, two tomatoes and a tiny piece of cheese.
The data released by the Labor Ministry are shocking:
126,956 employees in the private sector are paid a gross monthly salary of €100
343,760 employees are paid monthly salaries between €100 and €400 gross.
This category of workers have part-time or rotating work contracts.
Working time: 2-3 days per week or even a few hours a week.
100 euro per month gross could be 55-60(?) euro net – enough to cover transport cost and make a living at 1 euro per day.
PS a friend recently got a job for 300 euro gross – net should be around 250-230 euros Working hours are 4 hours per day, four days per week. She has been jobless for 4 years.
