Portugal - Minimum wage proposal discussed - January 01, 2017

The government has presented a proposal in which it calls for the minimum wage to be increased to 557 euro. The proposal was formulated after the ruling Socialists joined the opposition PSD and CDS-PP parties to vote against a proposal from the Portuguese Communist Party (PCP) recommending that the government would raise the National Minimum Wage to €600 per month from 1 January 2017.
