“Slovenia’s labour minister, Anja Kopac Mrak, has proposed to increase the minimum monthly wage by 4.7% to 842.79 euro ($1,028.9) gross, or 638.42 euro net, the labour ministry said.

The current gross minimum monthly wage in Slovenia totals 804.96 euro, while the net minimum wage stands around 613.66 euro, the labour ministry said in a statement on Monday.

Kopac Mrak’s proposal factors in inflation, wage growth rate, economic conditions and the country’s economic growth forecast, the ministry noted.

Slovenia’s central bank said last month it expects economic growth of a real 4.2% and 1.4% inflation in 2018. Slovenia switched to annual inflation of 1.4% in 2017, from 0.1% deflation in 2016, according to official data.” (SeeNews)
