The trade union confederation KOZ is asking for an increase of the minimum wage to €400 per month. Their claim is that a person who works eight hours a day should not earn an amount that is below the poverty level. As a consequence a person working for the minimum wage during standard working hours should receive a net monthly salary of €346.40, after deductions into insurance funds (i.e. the social and health insurers).
