The national minimum wage in Portugal rises from €600 to €635 in 2020, a measure that should benefit 720,000 workers. The modification translates into a net salary increase of €31.13 per month (in 14 payments per annum). This basic salary is tax-exempt from Individual Income Tax (IRS). Workers pay only 11% in Social Security contributions. In the EU, the monthly national minimum wage ranges from a high of €2,090 in Luxembourg to a low of €312 in Bulgaria.
