LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), January 14 (SeeNews) - Slovenia's government decided to increase the minimum gross monthly wage by 4.9% to 1,074.43 euro ($1,230.64) as of January 1, it said.

The lowest gross hourly wage will amount to 6.17 euro after the day of publication of the resolution in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, the government said in a statement earlier this week.

The increase will be equal to the rise in consumer prices in 2021, labour minister Janez Cigler Kralj said last week.

Under Slovenia's legislation, the minimum wage in the country is adjusted at least once a year to the growth rate of consumer prices.

In 2021, the gross minimum monthly wage in Slovenia amounted to 1,024.20 euro.
