Came cross monthly wage rates in Switzerland in 2012. An experienced painter is on about €65k and an unskilled painter is on about €50k, plus they receive an extra (13th) month salary at the end of the year; €250 a month lunch allowance if they can’t get home for lunch. 27 work days off plus 9 bank holidays; near enough full pay for the time they do military service; 5 days a year improvement / skills training
They look fantastically high wages, but as a gauge, a low working wage (not minimum wage) is currently about €40k a year in Switzerland, an experienced schoolteacher earns about €80k, a university professor is on €180-€250k a year.
The figures in the table are Swiss francs which is almost on parity with the euro
