In nominal terms, the average net monthly wage was up by a monthly 10.5% in April, following a 2% drop in March. In addition, most of the persons in paid employment who were temporarily laid-off were jobless for the whole month in April, while in March they were laid-off only in the second half of the month.

This resulted in a drop of the number of persons in paid employment and an increase in average gross and net earnings compared to earnings for March, the Ljubljana-based statistical office explained.

It did not provide a figure for the real change in annual terms, saying that in nominal terms the April net wage was up 13.6% compared to April 2019. At the same time, the average monthly gross earnings amounted to EUR 1,937 in April, up by a real 11.2% and by a nominal 10.2% compared to March. They were higher by a nominal 11.9% in annual terms, SURS said on June 15.
