Wage income was 20,670 euros on average in 2014
In 2014, the annual wage income, the sum of all net wages received by a person in a year, was €20,670 on average. In constant euros, this was 1.0% higher than the 2013 level, breaking with the negative trend observed between 2010 and 2013. The wage income of managers was on average almost three times that of manual or white-collar workers. Amounts were particularly dispersed for the under-25s, manual workers and blue-collar workers, employee categories that are more likely to experience periods of inactivity or unemployment in the course of the year.
