English term or phrase: "spike"
Coverage of the minimum wage:
The percentage of employees with earnings at the minimum wage level- known as “spike”- is markedly different between countries. Statutory minimum wages could affect all employees, only private sector employees, or cover only specific occupations. In some countries, employers who are covered by sectoral minimum wages established by the government in accordance with the recommendations of wage councils are excluded from coverage by the statutory minimum.
==============================
This is a part of a document on setting minimum wage in Egypt.
Note: This question was posted as English question, but I could not figure out the right Arabic equivalent.

A possible explanation (not an answer)


Explanation:
I think “spike” in your context refers to a peak in a graphic curve indicating that a larger number (or %) of workers earn the minimum wage as compared to any other wage group. I am not sure, though of how that may be expressed in Arabic.
