Portugal -Business leaders call for increase of minimum wage -March 8, 2013

Trade unions and employer confederations disagree with the government’s claim that any increase in the national minimum wage would be an extra cost for business and that, in the current context of the economy, it would act as a barrier to employment. The national minimum wage, currently at €485 per month, is the lowest in the Eurozone. Social partners argue that the minimum wage should have been increased towards European rates.
