Aiming for good jobs

The increase in the minimum wage is a positive development. The value of labor was one of those areas that took the brunt of the internal devaluation during Greece's economic crisis. 

But cultivating an economic environment that will create high-paying jobs requires much more complex and painstaking efforts.

Ongoing discussion on minimum wage increase

Discussions are underway this Sunday for the new minimum wage increase, effective April 1.

Initiated on February 5, the process involves consultations scheduled to conclude by March 22, presenting recommendations to set the minimum wage. 

This marks the fourth consecutive increase by the government, from 650 euros in 2019 to €780 in April 2023.
