France has an interesting minimum wage policy which is set by employers, worker institutions and the government. It is indexed to inflation and worker productivity. It is currently about $12 dollars US. The minimum wage is not paid to everyone with students and starting employee making less.
Many credit the high minimum wage to France's lower income inequality compared to the United States.
