With a minimum gross salary of 413 euros (1,900 lei) per month, or 252 euros net, Romania is still on the penultimate place in the European Union in this chapter. Bulgaria is the last with a net minimum wage of 226 euros per month.

If a Romanian employee earns 252 euros net, as a minimum wage, one Hungarian employee has 40 euros more, while one in the Czech Republic has 165 euros above the level in the local market. By comparison, a Polish employee earns € 113 more than a Romanian paid at minimum wage. (source: zf.ro)
