The minimum salary in Albania and Kosovo the lowest in Europe

 Albania and Kosovo pay less their employees than in any other European country in terms of the minimum wage they are required by law. According to Eurostat data, at the beginning of 2020, the minimum gross wage in Albania was 213 euros. 

In Albania, according to Albanian InstituteStatistics, there are over 320,000 people, or nearly a third of employees, who pay insurance for the minimum wage of 26,000. Although the country's minimum wage has increased several times, it remains the lowest in Europe, with the exception of Kosovo. Its low level is also one of the main reasons for the high tendency for emigration.

Eurostat data is not for Kosovo, but according to official data, the minimum wage currently in Kosovo is 130 euros for employees under 35 and 170 euros for those over 35. Whereas the goal last year was to make this salary 250 euros, but it was not achieved. Kosovo's minimum wage has remained the same since 2011, with consumer prices rising. In North Macedonia, the gross minimum wage is 282 euros, according to Eurostat. In Montenegro it is 331 euros. The highest minimum wage in the region is in Serbia, 343 euros.

In general the minimum wages in the region are much lower than in European Union countries.
