Czech Republic - Wages in social services go up - June 30, 2017

The government approved a directive that will lead to an improvement of the wages of social and education workers. The salaries of social workers will rise by 23 percent as from July 2017, and those of culture employees and the non-teaching staff in the sphere of education by 9.4 percent. The trade union movement have demanded this already over a longer period of time. The poor wages resulted in restricted social services as thousands of people to look after seniors and the disabled were lacking.
