In November the gross wage per employee in Slovenia increased by a 14.4% in nominal terms and by 13.4% in real terms, as consumer prices increased by 0.9%. The large increase in earnings was linked to the disbursement of performance bonuses. The wage increase in the private sector totaled 6.8%, while the increase in earnings in public services (4.1%) was lower due to only partial indexation of wages to inflation. In January 2008 there were negotiations in both the public and private sectors for an additional wage adjustment due to the higher than projected inflation in 2007. Partners in the public sector agreed on a 3.4% wage increase to cover the difference between the 5.6% inflation in 2007.
