Poor wages in Andalucia e

WORKERS in Andalucia are among the most poorly paid in Spain, according to official statistics.

Four of the five Spanish provinces with the lowest average salary can be found in the region, while Malaga also appears near the bottom.

Statistics released by Spain’s tax office showed Jaen at the bottom, with average salaries at €13,040, compared to a national average of €19,102.

Huelva (€13,132) and Almeria (€14,033) also appeared in the bottom three, while Cordoba (€14,253) was 44th in the survey of 48 provinces.

It also emerged that around 40% of Malaga’s 225,000 workers were found to be earning below the minimum wage of €641.40 a month. This figure is even higher in other provinces.

None of Andalucia’s eight provinces appeared in the top ten of the list, which was topped by Madrid, Barcelona and Ceuta.
