Germany will increase the minimum wage by 12 euros per hour

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has stated that his government is committed to keeping its promise to raise the minimum wage to 12 euros an hour, adding that it is important to show respect for low-income workers.

"Increasing the minimum wage to 12 euros per hour in my opinion is one of the most important laws and it shows appreciation for workers. "I am now relieved that this initiative has finally taken off," said Scholz.

The Ministry of Labor estimates that this increase will benefit at least 6 million workers throughout Germany, while it will cost employers about 1.6 billion euros.
