Abstract: In 2015, the gross national minimum wage guaranteed in payment was “increased” twice, while as of May 1st, 2016, it was increased again. No matter whether we speak of the net or gross average wage, we will find out that it doesn’t cover, by far, the value needed for the basic needs, leaving aside the needs inferred from the quality of being a human, a superior, social being that has at least material, spiritual and cultural needs. In conclusion, the minimum wage barely provides the extreme survival of the, roughly, two million Romanian people that receive it.
