The Lithuanian Confederation of Industrialists (LPK) has said that it will support the government proposal to raise the minimum wage per July 2015. The Government is planning to raise the minimum wage to €325 per month, starting from 1 July. A spokesperson of the LPK said industrial employers are already paying wages above the statutory minimum and would not be affected by the raise. According to the confederation, a higher minimum wage could mainly be an obstacle to employment in small businesses and in the more rural regions.
