The proposal to raise the minimum wage to 520 euros is sufficient, according to Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD).
However, it is likely that the social partners will not agree on the tripartite meeting on Monday. "I would really like all social partners to find a match today at the minimum wage level. Probably no agreement will be reachedso on Wednesday the government will have to decide what the level is, "Pellegrini expects.
The Ministry of Labor proposes raising the minimum wage to 520 euros. "It is a reasonable increase of 8% and corresponds exactly to the design of new salary scales. I think there is room in Slovakia to raise the minimum wage and exceed the threshold of 500 euros and get closer to a gross minimum wage of 520 euros, "added Pellegrini.
