Minimum wage negotiations failed in Czech Republic

Interview

Trade unions and employers in Czech Republic on Thursday failed to agree on a planned minimum wage increase in 2014, leaving the decision in the hands of the government, local media reported. While trade unions demanded a CZK 600 (€23) raise, employers would not go higher than CZK 400. Social Affairs Minister Ludmilla Mullerová said she would present both options to the Cabinet for a final decision. The minimum wage is currently CZK 8,000 (€310) before tax, and has not been raised since 2007.
