Comparing wages of public sector workers across countries poses many difficulties. Nevertheless the OECD publishes some useful information.

In 2009 public sector clerical workers were paid below the OECD average. This is the latest available data (more timely data should be available in June). The OECD make adjustments for differences in working time and for the cost of living.

Since 2009, due to pay cuts, it is likely that clerical workers have fallen further down the international pay league.

More information on international pay comparisons can be found in the latest edition (Indicator 3.2a) of the NERI's Quarterly Economic Facts.
