fair wage equivalents

Fair wage wurde als midpoint impact für SLCA definiert. For this purpose, a characterization model was developed with which fair wage equivalents can be calculated. These equivalents combine real wages with minimum living wages in order to be able to make a statement about the possible standard of living. They also use a time factor to put wages in relation to working hours. In addition, an inequality factor is included in the calculation so that inequalities within a country can be taken into account. An extensive database has been created for easy calculation of the fair wage equivalents . It can be downloaded here.
