Poll: Only 53% of Czechs over thirty “satisfied” with their financial situation

Despite rising wages and low unemployment, only 53% of Czechs aged 30 or over are “satisfied” with their financial situation, according to a new STEM / MARK poll commissioned by Globus hypermarkets.

More men than women said they were “satisfied”, at 58% and 48%, respectively. Those figures are about 10 percentage points higher among people of both sexes who have a university degree, the poll found.

The average gross monthly wage in the Czech Republic rose by 8.6% in the first quarter of this year to CZK 30,265. Adjusted for inflation, real wages grew by 6.6% in annual terms.
