The minimum salary will be raised up to 2,380 lei a month as of May 1.
That also means 14.09 lei per hour, the equivalent of $0.74.
This minimum salary is valid for companies rather than for public institutions.
The Cabinet endorsed a draft decision in this respect today citing increases in consumer prices and work productivity.
Now, the minimum salary is 2,100 lei a month, as the Parliament is to give its final okay.
