Prime Minister Andrej Babiš is in favour of raising the minimum wage by a maximum of 1,000 crowns. Mr. Babiš made the statement on Tuesday after meeting with the head of the country’s Confederation of Industry, Jaroslav Hanák. Representatives of Czech employers say they are willing to raise the minimum wage by 800 crowns, but the Czech Republic’s trade unions are seeking an increase of 1,500 crowns, or 12 percent.
As of this January, the minimum wage in the Czech Republic is 12,000 crowns (less than 500 euros).
