Slovenia - National minimum wage increased - March 18, 2010

After a major trade union demonstration and months of negotiations, employers and unions have agreed to increase the national minimum wage. There will be three increases over the next three years in order to bring the minimum wage in line with the basic living costs for a single person household. The overall 22.9% increase will take the net minimum rate to Euro 562 a month by 2012, via Euro 510 in 2010 and Euro 530 in 2011 (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 2 November 2009).
