Minimum Wage Increase to €12

The statutory minimum wage in Germany will in all likelihood be raised to €12 per hour with effect from October 1, 2022. A corresponding bill by the government parliamentary groups, which among other things provides for the minimum wage increase, was approved by the German Bundestag on June 3, 2022. The legislative process has not yet been completed, as the Bundesrat also still has to be involved. This is to take place on June 10, 2022.
