Higher Minimum Wage in the Czech Republic

As of January 1st,2021, government officials have issued an executive order posing a higher minimum wage rate in the Czech Republic. It has been raised from a monthly rate of CZK 14,600 to CZK 15,200.

The rate for employees who hold work permits and or employee cards has also been raised by 4.1%, averaging out their monthly rate to CZK 15,200 as well.
