Living standard in Bulgaria has hit record lows that are not representative of the European Union as a whole.
The sad statistics are ranking Bulgaria in the bottom of countries with low living standard globally.
The minimum monthly wage in Bulgaria is lower even than the one in China's remote rural areas, according to experts from the International Labor Confederation.
Minimum monthly wages in various Chinese provinces range between USD 160 and 240.
In Bulgaria, after deducting taxes and insurance contributions, the net minimum monthly wage is EUR 96 or about EUR 3.6 a day.
The above amount is absolutely insufficient for survival, according to Sharan Burrow President of International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).
