The

locals

not only receive the highest wages in Spain,

an average of 2,350 euros gross

monthly, but are also those who have seen grow their salaries in the past 15 years, particularly in

620 euros

against 330 euros average rise recorded in that period in

Cantabria

.

The salary statistics published this week by the INE highlights that while

salaries have grown by 29.63%

on average in the country as a whole in those 15 years -between 2006 and 2020, which includes since before the financial crisis until the first year of the coronavirus-, the increases between the different communities have registered differences of almost 17 percentage points.

In the

Community of Madrid

, an average of

619.98 euros more is earned per month than a decade and a half ago

, in

Asturias

583.13 euros, in the

Valencian Community

499.21 and in

Catalonia

481.40 euros, in the four cases for above the national average, located at an increase of 466 euros.

Salaries have risen to a lesser extent in

Galicia

(448.24 euros),

Murcia

(440.33),

Castilla-La Mancha

(433.64),

Navarra

(424.73),

Extremadura

(418.02) and

La Rioja

( 406.53), and even less in the

Balearic Islands

(396.83 euros),

Andalusia

(393.32),

Castilla y León

(390.80),

Basque Country

(381.88),

Canarias

(362.28),

Aragon

( 340.67) and

Cantabria

(329.21 euros).

SOMETHING ELSE UP SOME COMMUNITIES WITH LOWER SALARIES

In percentage,

Asturias

is first

(36.95%) and then

Madrid

(35.83%), followed by the

Valencian Community

(35.12%),

Murcia

(31.38%),

Extremadura

(31.14%) ,

Galicia

(30.01%) and

Castilla-La Mancha

(29.73%), all of them above the national average (29.63%).

It so happens that, apart from the cases of

Asturias and Madrid

-especially the latter, which has the highest average salaries in Spain-, the rest of these communities have salaries below the average, which would imply that the Registered increases point to a certain correction towards equilibrium.

Salaries have risen below the average in Catalonia (28.71%), the Balearic Islands (27.41%), Andalusia (27.24%), La Rioja (26.39%), the Canary Islands (25.63%) , Castilla y León (25.06%), Navarra (23.80%) and, closing the list, Aragon (20.88%), Cantabria (20.43%) and the Basque Country (20.13%).

Regarding the autonomous cities,

Melilla is the Spanish territory where wages have increased the most

in those 15 years, 50.07%, equivalent to 888.36 euros, and Ceuta the least, only 17.16%, 330.58 euros.

GREATEST RISE BETWEEN 2006 AND 2010 AND LESS FROM 2011 TO 2015

The rise in wages in these fifteen years,

traversed by the 2008 crisis

and the long subsequent recovery, has not been homogeneous throughout the period, but rather, if divided into five-year periods, most of the total increase occurred between 2006 and 2010, when salaries in the country as a whole grew by 16.93%, while in the following five years they improved by only 2.82% and in the last five they increased by 8.55.

During the first period (2006-2010), the highest increases occurred in Madrid (21.34%), Extremadura (21.15%) and Castilla-La Mancha (20.44%) and the lowest in the Basque Country (10 , 58%), Catalonia (13.81%) and Castilla y León (13.95%).

In the intermediate five-year period (2011-2015), salaries rose in

nine communities

, especially in Madrid (10.33%) and the Basque Country (6.41%), but they fell in eight, more markedly in the Canary Islands (3 , 31%) and the Valencian Community (2.01%).

In the last five years of the period analyzed (2016-2020),

average salaries have increased more in Murcia

(13.24%), the Valencian Community (10.64%), Catalonia (10.56%) and Asturias (10 , 43%), and less in Cantabria (1.60%) and the Basque Country (1.95%).
