AS OF October 1, the minimum monthly wage in Slovakia is set at Sk6,080 (€148), and the price of one-hour labour cannot sink under Sk35 (€0.85), the daily SME reports.

Deputy minister of the Labour Ministry Miroslav Beblavý said that with the 9.16-percent increase, the minimum wage is the highest in Slovakia's history.

The cabinet ministers definitively rejected the Trade Union Confederation (KOZ) request to increase the minimum wage to Sk6,760 (€164) this year.

According to Labour Ministry data, over the first quarter of the current year, 1,292 employees received the minimum wage, thus comprising 0.26 percent of all employed persons in Slovakia.
