The average salary in the financial sector is Sk28,500 (€891), the SITA newswire wrote, quoting a survey by Mercedes.sk that received 85,000 responses.

This was 70 percent higher than the salaries earned in the tourism, hotels and gastronomy sectors, which pay Sk16,600 (€519) a month.

The salary was Sk23,000 (€719) in the following sectors: services, power generation and distribution, natural gas, steam and water, transport, posts and telecommunications, construction, architecture, real estate, and industrial manufacturing. People working in education earn Sk17,000 (€531) a month.

Many foreign companies operate in sectors with highest wages. These are making a profit, which enables them to pay salaries above the Slovak average. The sharp development and the lack of experts stimulate faster wage growth in these segments, according to Dalibor Jakuš, director of Profesia, which runs the survey.

Agriculture and tourism employ more people with a lower education, which is reflected in the wages, he said. But these people earn tips, he added.

The Mercedes.sk survey also revealed differences in employment benefits. Employees at leasing companies, natural gas firms, and IT companies receive the most, while those in health care, accommodation and education receive the least. SITA
