The country’s minimum monthly wage rose to PLN 2,600 (EUR 609, USD 683), from PLN 2,250 in 2019.

Meanwhile, the minimum hourly rate went up to PLN 17 (EUR 4, USD 4.50), from PLN 14.70, effective January 1.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said in September that the minimum wage in Poland would increase in stages this year and in 2021.

Earlier, the country’s conservative leader, Jarosław Kaczyński, told a campaign rally that the Polish minimum monthly wage would grow to PLN 3,000 at the end of 2020 and then rise further to PLN 4,000 three years later.

The wage hikes are part of a package of spending pledges Poland’s ruling conservatives made ahead of last year’s parliamentary elections.

The minimum wage in Poland rose to PLN 2,250 at the start of last year, from PLN 2,100 in 2018.

The average Polish monthly wage in November was PLN 5,229.44 (EUR 1,227, USD 1,367), the country’s Central Statistical Office reported last month.
