In January, Slovenia's gross wage per employee decreased by 1.2% in nominal terms and by 1.3% in real terms from December. The decrease in earnings was due to the higher December level as a result of the disbursement of 13th month payments, Christmas bonuses and performance bonuses. January did not yet see the wage adjustment to cover the difference between actual and projected inflation in 2007.

The government adopted a draft Act Regulating the Minimum Wage, which stipulates that the minimum wage will rise by 5.2%.
