Luxembourg's workforce benefits from the highest hourly rate of compensation of any region in the European Union, alongside Brussels.

Luxembourg came out on top of an EU ranking, with workers clocking up €44 an hour of pay and benefits in 2016 on average, the same as in Brussels.

The latest figures from the European Union’s statistical office Eurostat include wages, salaries and employer’s social contributions.

In contrast, workers were paid below €4 per hour in three regions in Bulgaria, and one region of Romania.

Luxembourg was also far above the EU average of €23 per hour.
