The government announced on Thursday that the minimum monthly gross salary will increase from 320 euros to 355 from January 1, and a further 35 euros a year later.

The minimum hourly wage will increase from 1.90 euros to 2.13 in 2014 and 2.34 euros a year later.

The minimum salary has been increased each year since the beginning of 2012 after being frozen at 278.02 euros monthly for four years. That figure ten years ago was just 138.05 euros.

Both the Latvian and Lithuanian minimum salaries are around 290 euros, while Finland has no set legal minimum wage.

The average salary gross in Estonia is 930 euros per month.
