The ministry wants the minimum hourly pay upped to PLN 14.70.

The minimum wage is currently set at PLN 2,100 a month, or 47.3 percent of the forecast average wage in Poland this year.

Minimum hourly pay at the moment is PLN 13.70.

The labour ministry’s proposals will be discussed by the Cabinet on Tuesday.

The average monthly wage in Poland in the first quarter of this year rose to PLN 4,622, the country’s Central Statistical Office said last month.
