Bulgaria -Social partners consider differentiated minimum wage -October 08, 2012

The Ministry of Finance announced that it will put forward a proposal to differentiate the minimum wage by region. The proposal will be discussed in the tripartite Three-Way Council. One of the considerations is to lower the minimum wage in regions with higher unemployment rates. Employers have welcomed the proposals, whereas trade unions condemned it as absolutely unacceptable. Critics warn the proposals may infringe European law.
