Poverty threatens every fourth Czech

For us, according to statisticians of the most common hourly wages 4.4 euros (114 dollars) and the overall risk of poverty for a fifth of workers (19 percent).

In men, low salaries are less frequent, yet receives almost one in ten workers (13 percent). "Relentlessly repeated myths about how Czech society is egalitarian, are definitely statistically refuted. Not that only people without work may be poor," says Dalibor Bare, director of labor market statistics and equal opportunities.

Threshold low wages is determined as the wage that is less than two thirds of the median wage. "The median salary is the most common in the country and it is our 21,862 crowns.'s Less than the average wage, because they affect the extremely high salaries of top managers," said Bare. In the Czech Republic the average overestimated by almost a fifth (18 percent).

The worst are the young working women

High likelihood of lower wages for employees under 19 years of age. In young women, the most common salary 12,822 crowns.They are mostly administrative and support activities, and then also the security staff and security agencies who do not have the proper qualifications. Poverty also threatens cleaners and helpers in offices, hotels and industrial buildings. "Poverty, however, does not avoid some skilled craft occupations. Example, seamstresses and embroiderers should pay 13,478 crowns," said Bare.

Being a college student is worth

To the low wages they get only two per cent of university-educated people. Conversely, people with basic education are at risk of poverty dramatically. In the Czech Republic fights with her nearly half (41 percent) of people with well-worn devítiletkou.

How are the Slovaks?

The Slovak moving average hourly wage of around 3.9 euros (101 dollars) and poverty risk is there a total of 19 percent of the workers. Significant differences between the salaries are in the former Soviet republics of Lithuania, Latvia, as well as in Romania, where poverty threatens every fourth worker, but the situation there - unlike the Czech Republic -improving. Worse are also working on the Poles, Hungarians, but also Germans.

Most are doing working in Sweden, Finland and France, where poverty threatens about 4.8 percent of the workforce.
