Interior Minister Jan Hamáček (Social Democrats) has proposed the budget for the state-controlled postal service be tripled to 1.5 billion crowns.
Česká pošta, which employs about 30,000 people, has more than 1,300 vacancies due to low wages, he said during a visit on Tuesday of the service’s biggest processing centre.
Last year, the average salary at Česká pošta was about 5,000 crowns below the national average, Mr Hamáček said.
