Bank employees: Cash flows through their hands — but little of it sticks

While much money may flow through their hands, little of it ends up in bank workers’ pockets. The annual income of a bank worker in Greece with 10 years of service is second lowest in the 15 EU member states (with Portugal occupying last place). More specifically, the annual income of a bank workers in Athens does not exceed 15,632 euros, while their counterparts, with the same number of years in service, can earn up to 64,495 euros per annum in France and 49,189 euros per annum in England. On a global level, bank employees are paid more highly than Greeks in Santiago, Chile, Bogota, Colombia, Shanghai, China, and Taipei in Taiwan.
