The Swiss city of Geneva will have a minimum wage of 23 Swiss francs (about $ 25) an hour, which is approximately $ 3,772 Swiss francs (about $ 4,100) per month, working 41 hours a week, as reported on CNBC.
This Sunday, Geneva authorities voted to introduce the new minimum wage, which is said to be the highest in the world.
This salary is scheduled to be implemented this month.
This measure had already been rejected twice in 2011 and 2014. However, the coronavirus pandemic has caused the authorities to focus more on the problem of poverty in Geneva, city where there are thousands of people queuing for food.
It should be noted that Geneva is known as one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Geneva’s new minimum wage will be more than triple that in the US., at $ 7.25 per hour.
