Latvia's low wage economy explored

Investigative journalism organization Re:Baltica has produced a new series of reports exploring the low level of wages generally paid in Latvia.

The research asks why wages in Latvia compare poorly even with neighboring Estonia and Lithuania and asks whether raising the minimum wage (currently €370 per month before taxes) would help or hinder economic growth in the country. 

Rather than reproduce the lengthy material, you can read it all at the Re:Baltica website HERE
