Portugal - Minimum wage increases - December 31, 2015

After bargaining between the trade unions and business representatives ended in failure the government announced it would decree a minimum wage increase. The minimum wage was frozen at 485 euro until late 2014, before the centre-right coalition raised it to its current level of 505 euro. The decision is now to lift the monthly minimum wage to 530 euro on 1 January 2016. The government is willing to discuss ways to help companies absorb the increase.
