"700 plus" – this slogan gives an overview of the increase in the minimum wage for the authorities of the Cypriot community. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawicz announced today the amount of the minimum wage for the next year at today's press conference. If the announcements prove, the minimum wage in 2020 will increase to 2,450 PLN, which means it will be higher by 200 PLN than at present. As Prime Minister stressed, since the beginning of the power PiS the minimum wage increased by 700 zlotys.
"700 Plus" by Mateusz Morawicki is a summary of the increase in the minimum wage
On Tuesday, June 11, 2019, the prime minister announced an increase in the minimum wage for 2020. In the next year, the lowest domestic will be more than 200 PLN from today. Employees can expect PLN 2450 from the minimum wage.
Mateusz Morawiecki: It's our 700 plus. It can be said that on an annual basis it is the thirteenth salary for the least paid. This change will be noted especially after taking into account the reduction of the PIT to 17%.
"700 Plus" is a project that was not announced, but PiS is proud of it
As Mateusz Morawicki stressed, "700 Plus" is an unannounced project. However, PI is proud of him. According to the prime minister, the increase in the minimum wage is of great importance for Polish workers – salaries must grow to make the economy more effective.
Mateusz Morawiecki: An employee must be respected and his reward is to like him. The amount of compensation also depends on the efficiency of the work itself and, as a result, on the efficiency and competitiveness of the entire economy. In 2020, the minimum wage will be 2450 PLN. This is an increase of 700 BGN from the beginning of our governments. This is a project that we have not announced, and we are proud of. This is our 700 plus.
"700 Plus" is not enjoyed by employers. They are afraid of an excessive increase in the minimum wage
Employers are not as optimistic as the prime minister. According to them, such a large and sudden increase in wages can be deadly for companies.
- Employers propose an increase in the minimum wage to 2387 PLN.
- Unions (FZZ, NSZZ "Solidarność", OPZZ) want the minimum wage in 2020 to be gross 2,520 PLN.
It is worth remembering that the official minimum wage for the next year will be announced on September 15 – then the announcement of the prime minister will be announced.
