Minimum wage to exceed Sk6,000

The Slovak cabinet has approved raising the minimum monthly wage by SKK 510 (€12.21) to SKK 6,080 (€146) as of October 2003.

The ministers approved a higher than originally proposed increase - the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family originally proposed raising the minimum wage to only SKK 5,950 (€142). The hourly minimum wage will increase from SKK 32 to SKK 35 (€0.77 to €0.84).

The unions are still unhappy with the rise. They will keep pressurising the cabinet
