Notable discrepancies can be observed in the Member States of the European Union (EU) in gross hourly earnings, not only between the 10% of employees earning the least and the 10% earning the most, but also according to the economic activity, with financial and insurance activities being among the highest paying industries in every EU Member State and accommodation and food services among the lowest paying.

This information on earnings disparities is issued by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union. It is based on the latest results of the four-yearly Structure of Earnings Survey. They are complemented with a more detailed on-line article and an interactive infographic on earnings by economic activity.
