Why is the salary in Ukraine the lowest than in other European countries?

The most acute social problem in Ukraine is a large gap between a high cost-of-living and low cost of labour.
Among the accumulated problems in the field of payment for labour the special place is occupied by a low specific gravity of charges on labour force in a production cost.
Ukrainians are paid copecks for their work, as if the human labour costs less than some screw or filament. To make sure herein let’s consider the structure of operating charges of enterprises.

The materials of a “round table” of the parliamentary Committee on Social Policy and Labour on a theme “Payment of labour - Ukrainian realities, the newest aims and solidarity tasks” are used in the speech.
