Slovakia -Minimum wage to increase to €405 -October 14, 2015

Following the failure of social partners to negotiate a new minimum wage, the government has announced it is raising the minimum wage to €405. The increase comes close to the €410 that had been suggested by trade unions and remains far from employers’ requests to keep it at the current €380. The raise will also lift the minimum wage from 50% of the average salary to 51%. Trade unions have welcomed the hike, whereas employers warned that low educated workers would find it increasingly difficult to get a job, as the minimum wage was raised by a total 15% over recent years.
