The average monthly salary of 422 Euro in Serbia is among the lowest in Europe and the region, the Demostat research center said on Monday.
Demostat said only Macedonia with an average of 376 Euro and Albania with 378 Euro have lower monthly salaries.
Average salaries in Bosnia-Herzegovina are 440 Euro, Montenegro 512, Croatia 832, Slovenia 1,077, Hungary 703, Romania 535 and Bulgaria 457 Euro.
How low salaries in Serbia are becomes clear when compared to the strongest European Union economies, a Demostat press release said and added that the average net salary in those countries is up to 8 times higher than in Serbia.
The low salaries in Serbia are a reflection of the bad economic situation, Demostat said.
