High salaries in Iceland

Annual salaries in Iceland are one of the highest in Europe, newspaper Bladid reports. Icelandic salaries are, on average, 37% higher than those in other European member states. Construction workers in Iceland are particularly well paid, receiving 63% more than the average European wage for construction work.
