A year later, on January 1, 2025, the minimum wage is to be raised to €12.82, according to the recommendations, which are almost always put into effect by the German government.
Every two years, the commission, which is made up of representatives from companies, trade unions and science, issues a recommendation on the future level of the minimum wage.
According to DW the commission said, The resolution comes at a time of weak economic growth and persistently high inflation in Germany, which poses great challenges for companies and employees alike.
