The minimum wage should be raised to between 8,000-8,500 TL, Minister of Labour and Social Security Hasan Taçoy has said, Yeniduzen reported.
Currently, the minimum wage is 7,000 TL, however, because of the devalued Turkish Lira, this no longer meets the basic cost of living. The Commission determining the minimum wage is set to meet soon.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Hür-İş Federation Ahmet Serdaroğlu, representing small tradesmen at the Commission, argued that the figures quoted by the labour minister fall below the breadline and they would not accept them.
