WORKING people earned Sk16,022 (€415) per month on average in the first quarter of this year, a 7.2 percent real growth year-on-year, the daily Pravda reported, based on the latest data from the Slovak Statistics Office.

Although people in all Slovak regions enjoyed a real wage increase, those in the wealthy Bratislava region still take home an estimated Sk7,000 to 10,000 (€181-259) more per month.

The average nominal monthly wage in Bratislava reached Sk22,072 (€572) for the first three months of this year. Workers in Eastern Slovakia's Prešov region earned Sk11,949 (€310), the lowest of all.

Košice workers take home the second best pay, earning Sk15,580 (€404) per month on average.

Bratislava recorded the highest real growth of wages - 10.1 percent. On the opposite end, Prešov again fared the worse, its real wages increasing just 2.1 percent year on year.
