Minimum pay – what determines it?

What determines the minimum pay? In essence, it is the sum of the amount of minimum costs with an increase of 20 to 40 percent plus the amount of taxes and compulsory social security contributions for the worker. To emphasize, this is without the tax reliefs; and the worker who has no taxable income other than the minimum wage and the statutory minimum wage and the annual leave, which would have an effect on the amount of the general allowance. However, this is not all. Price inflation, wage trends, economic and employment conditions matter too! The Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia by the end of January of the current year publishes the changes. It is the ministry of Labor that publishes the information.
