Luxembourg pays almost double the EU average.

A recent Eurostat study compiling the hourly rates across Europe (data relative to 2016) has found that Luxembourg is the highest paying country.

With an average compensation of 44 EUR per hour the GD is almost double the EU average.

The EU average, as a whole, is only €23.

Compared to our neighbours, France €32 Eur, Germany €31 and Belgium €31 Eur, Luxembourg's hourly rate is a third higher.

Bulgaria meanwhile pays a shocking €6 per hour.
