Minimum wages in South Caucasus

Updated: 24 June, 2014 seen 1,559

Yesterday I wrote about minimum wages in Baltic states. Today I would like to write about minimum wages in South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia) countries. Both of these regions was once a part of Soviet Union, and for me it's interesting to compare how each of the regions have developed since collapse of Soviet Union.

Armenia $108, Azerbaijan $133, Georgia $54

Well, if in previous post about minimum wages in Baltic states, I told, that Baltic states are one of the poorest in European Union, then Caucasian country minimum wages looks much worst.

Anyway, it's the minimum wage look in Caucasus countries in 2013. I think - Georgian 54$ is the lowest minimum wage in former Soviet Union. And right now I'm starting to think that Baltic states modest $400 minimum wage is the highest in former Soviet Union.

Speaking of Georgia - this number should be raised at least to $100 ASAP, Speaking of region as whole, I hope by end of decade we could see modest minimum wage $300.
