Announcing the new minimum wage, Labour Minister Spiro Ristovski said the Economic-Social Council has approved the decision to hike minimum wage for workers in the textile and leather industries.
 
As a result, the minimum net wage for people working in the textile and leather industries would rise to Denar 6,859 per annum, while the minimum gross wage would increase to Denar 10,990, the Minister said.
