THE AVERAGE salary in Slovakia reached nearly Sk16,000 (€396) per month in 2003, while average wage per hour grew by 12.1 percent to nearly Sk105 (€2.60), a new Trexima study showed.
People in Bratislava earned the most; almost Sk140 (€3.47) per hour, while employees in the Prešov region earned the least - Sk82.3 (€2.04).
Despite the total growth of hourly wages, real growth was 3.5 percent on average and the majority of regions actually saw a decrease in real wages because of the last year's high inflation rate, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote.
