NasePlaty.sk specialises in wage monitoring and is run by Jobagent, a job-search website. The project maps Slovakia's labour market and helps people orientate themselves in it.

The April results further show that 63 percent of those who responded to the anonymous questionnaire on the NasePlaty.sk website are employees of local companies or state institutions and earn an average monthly wage of Sk27,000 (€806). Emploign companies who responded to the survey earn an average of Sk36,000 (€1,075) a month and made up 37 percent of respondents.

The average wage of all respondents was Sk30,600 (€913).
