The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has put forward a new decree that would raise the minimum wage in the Czech Republic by over 12 percent. The previously announced change would see the minimum wage climb by CZK 1,500 to CZK 13,700.
The amendment to the Labour Code, which has been posted on the Czech government website, also envisages tying growth of the minimum wage to average salary increases from the year 2020.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs is headed by Jana Maláčová of the Social Democrats.
