I found funny with this wages and I get surprised how people are surviving in Portugal when one single room need pay at least 300 to 350 food 200, transporte 40 ,little hand cash buying clothes and others from where money will come from .This wages never be a any standard of living .life is difficult to meet the basic need at least that's the reality in Portugal

Great news, At any cost Portugal Government should be increased monthly salary from 635 Euros to 740 Euros plus....! Otherwise in comparison with living expenses here in Portugal people are really struggling, fighting to survive......
