Luxembourg wins in clean sweep for pay

What’s the best paying hourly rate for contractors on your books? Does it compare with £13.17 an hour?

That’s the hourly rate for a role in Luxembourg that commands almost twice the pay that the same role would in the UK. The role in question is that of a cleaner.

A study from London Cleaning System – a family-run professional cleaning company – finds the average wage of a cleaner in the UK is £7.27 an hour. As well as being nearly half that of Luxembourg cleaners, this also pales in comparison with the rate cleaners in Belgium (£11.55), Finland (£11.08) and the Netherlands (£10.57) can command.
