In 2014, full-time workers earned on average 3,414 euros gross per month in Belgium, stated Thursday the Economy SPF (Statistics General Directorate). This is a very relative average, since two-thirds of salaried employees earned less.
In fact, half of employees earned less than 2,976 euros per month in 2014. Furthermore, 10% of workers earned less than 2,220 euros gross per month, and at the other extreme of the scale, 10% of salaried employees earned over 5,178 euros.
The disparity in salaries between men and women continues to be a reality. Full-time women workers earned 6% less than men. Moreover, when considering part-time work, which is mainly done by women, the gap reached 20%.
