The Spanish government is to freeze the minimum wage in 2014 at 2013's rates, which will mean €645.30 monthly, an equivalent of €21.51 per day, and equating to €9,034.20 p.a. This assumes the tradition of 14 monthly payments, equating to an actual monthly wage of €752.85. For homeworkers or those paid by hourly rate, the minimum wage will be €5.05 per hour. Temporary workers will have a minimum wage of €30.57. 

This is the second year that this government has frozen the minimum wage - they did the same in 2012 just after coming into power. Unions are expected to object to the proposals on the grounds that the measure is an effective reduction in workers' pay, but they have been given virtually no time to submit their complaints: the measure is expected to be approved tomorrow morning in Cabinet.

The Spanish government is to raise the minimum wage in 2015 by half a percent, equivalent to an increase of €3.30 a month. This takes the minimum wage from €645.30 to €648.60 a month, assuming the traditional 2 extra monthly payments, and so an annual wage of €9,080.40, as opposed to the €9,034.20 it has been for the past two years  The government recognized that the rise is "modest", but said that it was an improvement on last year when the amount was frozen, and that it was now at the rate of inflation or better. JA
