Slovakia - Increase of minimum wage settled - October 31, 2016

People working for the minimum wage will be receiving €435 per month in 2017, according to the regulations signed by the government. The representatives of the government, employers and trade unions have been repeatedly negotiating the minimum wage hike, but they failed to come to an agreement. Thus, the Labour Ministry became responsible for proposing the amount. This hike means that the minimum wage will represent 52 percent of the average monthly salary. The minimum wage stands at €405 per month in 2016, which is an increase of €25 compared to 2015.
