Spain average salary 50% that of the UK

Wed 20th Jan 2010

The average wage in Spain is currently half that in the U.K. The claim comes from a recent report from ADECCO, the part time working agency, which also found that the average wage in Spain remains 20% below the EU average.

The report was compiled using data from Eurostat which places the average wage in Spain in 2008 at 21.500 €.

In most other European countries the highest wages are found in the services sector, while in Spain it is manufacturing which is better paid. UK pay came out top of the 14 countries in the ADECCO report which also showed that the difference between male and female wages remains consistent across the continent as a whole.

Spain comes in fourth in the list for the biggest differences in pay between the sexes at 34.4% for full-time employment. It's only slightly lower than in 2003. While the average difference across Europe has widened slightly to 28%.
