Minimum wage levels

on our complex the site management and site maintenance are stil tied to the builder. Most of the owners on site dont seem to care about the fact that they have delegated full spending authority to the site manager. The budget prepared for the site is really not a budget at all - it is effectively a price. The year end accounting will generally show a year on year deficit - purely down to fee defaulters.

The price /maintenance fee has always been high in comparison to what could be achieved in the wider market place but again owners seem happy to pay whatever is asked - UK owners abroad in places like Turkey seem to act in different ways to how they would operate back home in the UK.Whereas in the UK most would compare price and quality between different enterprises - with regard to site management and maintenance in Turkey the UK owners on our complex seem to take the Que Sera attitude - whatever will be will be.

However even some of those owners I refer to here are beginning to wake up and smell the coffee. The site budget/ price has increased over the past 5 years by over 50%. Staff costs are rising 25/30% year on year and the site management company explain this away by claiming it is all down to increasing minimum wage levels. Now I know that Turkey is trying to bring wage levels up to a more acceptable level but I think I am right in saying that the increases are generally around the 6% mark .

What I would like to hear from members is what they would consider a fair gross monthly wage to be for a site watchman/ gateman and a site gardener. Better still if anybody could send me via email a copy of their site's yearly budget ( of course please remove any identifying details of site if necessary) then I would be very appreciative.

Re: Minimum wage levels

These are minimum wage jobs. The link shows you the rate, but on top of that will be Social Security etc.
Monthly minimum wage set at TL 868.50, receives criticism
