The topic of statutory minimum wage regulation has gained new relevance in Europe. Most European countries already have schemes for statutory minimum wage, while this has been an alien concept in the Nordic text. In this paper we give an update of the key information in the report «European Minimum Wage: A Nordic Outlook» (2012), and we also take a closer look at the introduction of statutory minimum wage in Germany. The paper is written on assignment from the Council of Nordic Trade Unions.
