Bulgaria -Government attempts to index minimum wage -July 23, 2015

The government has submitted a proposal to the social partners, containing plans for the minimum wage to become between 35% and 55% of the average wage. The minimum wage has been an ongoing debate in the country, which currently has an administratively defined minimum wage. The minimum wage, however, is regularly raised, including twice in the current year, springing heated political debates every time. The new plan, which employers’ Bulgarian Industrial Capital Association (BICA) has already objected to, would index the wage and thus curb the ongoing debate.
