The monthly minimum wage in Romania is to increase to 1,450 lei ($341) from 1,250 lei ($294) on Feb. 1, the Romanian government said Jan. 6 in a news release.
Under the new minimum wage, the hourly minimum wage would be 8.735 lei ($2.06). The minimum wage will apply to employees working a full schedule of 166 hours per month.
The move to increase the minimum wage comes after a Jan. 4 vote of confidence for the new left-leaning government.
Fines for failing to pay the established minimum wage will range from 300 lei ($71) to 2,000 lei ($471), the government decision said.
The minimum wage was last raised in May 2016 to 1,250 lei and applied to those working 169 hours per month.
