The government has finally announced an increase of the statutory minimum wage (SMI) with 0.5%. As of 1 January 2015 this will bring the minimum wage to the level of 648.6 euro. The minimum wage was frozen in 2012, increased with 0.6% in 2013 and again frozen in 2014. The trade unions have already stated in a reaction that the increase is far from what is necessary to keep pace with the purchase power that has been lost since the start of the crisis. According to UGT and CC.OO and increase with 12.5%, to the level of 725 euro, would be more appropriate.
