Net average wage increased by 2.8 percent in November 2010 compared to October last year and by 0.8 percent y-o-y, reports the National Statistics Institute, as quoted by Mediafax news wire.
Thus, the net average wage reached RON 1,377. The highest values were registered in the financial area, where an average net salary was of RON 3,380, and the lowest in hotels and restaurants, with an average of RON 804. The extractive industry also registered notable wage increases, of up to 12.3 percent, notes the same source.
The reason for the general wage increase from November to October lies in the offering of occasional bonuses (including holiday bonuses), the payment of sums from other sources (including lunch and gift tickets), but also in the production increase in some cases, the return from technical unemployment periods or the layoffs of underpaid employees, adds the quoted source.
