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.

Long and rocky road to average salary of 1,500 euros

According to academics and labor experts, the goal is hard to achieve even at nominal prices. As they say, after the increase in the minimum wage, the average has been set at €1,200.
