Increase minimum wage

larmonie3WILLEMSTAD - The minimum wage will be increased effective January 1, 2015 to 8.15 guilders per hour. This is an increase of 22 cents. This was announced by the Minister of Social Development, Labor and Welfare (SOAW) Ruthmila Larmonie yesterday.

The increase in the hourly wage is introduced due to the increased prices of goods and services purchased by households for consumption. For a 40-hour working week an employee will then earn 329 guilders.
