Study: Slovak PM earns the least

A STUDY conducted by the advisory firm Hay Group, which was recently published in the German economic weekly Wirtschaftswoche, showed that the Slovak prime minister earned the least of a select group of 13 European prime ministers.

British PM Tony Blair led the chart with €268,500, followed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who earns €7,000 less per year, the Hospodárske noviny reported.

The Hay Group notes, however, that although the British PM leads the chart of the best paid European prime ministers, he lags behind the wages of British top managers, earning just 5 to 10 percent of the latter's annual income.

Slovak PM Mikuláš Dzurinda was last with €39,100 per year. The second-lowest paid leader was Polish PM Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz with an annual wage of €53,400.

Czech PM Jiří Paroubek, who was not included in the Hay Group study, earns around €65,000.
