    This is interesting but only goes back to 2008.

    Also found the following below which was published May 2011.

    Several major Chinese cities monthly ‘Minimum Wages’ as of March 2011 in Yuan after increases ranging from 14-28%:

    Jiangsu 1,140

    Shanghai 1,280

    Chongqing 870

    Zhejiang 1,310

    Guangdong 1,300

    While the increases are significant, note the range based on current exchange is $133 to $200 USD per month. Chinese labor laws are strict and from this figure there are worker contributions to social security, housing fund and requisite tax deductions, thus on a gross basis this maintains an hourly rate from $0.83 to $1.25 per hour.
