Spain continues to have some of the lowest wages in the European Union and in the Balearics it is a serious problem. | Jaume Morey
The minimum wage in Spain now stands at 1,125.8 euros a month, paid in 14 installments. While this may be enough to live on in some parts of the mainland, it is not enough to reside in the Balearics, far from it. You can expect to pay up to 500 euros for a room in a shared flat so that doesn´t leave too much to live on for the rest of the month.
