The average gross wage in Slovenia dropped 1.2% in April over March, to EUR 1,237.42, but was up 5.9% over the year before, the Statistics Office said on Friday, 15 June.

Figures suggest the average net wage was 0.9% lower on a monthly comparison, at EUR 807.86. Compared to April of last year, the average net wage grew by 8.3%.

In real terms the monthly drop in gross wages was even higher, at 2.3%, as Slovenia posted inflation in April, the Statistics Office said. The real annual growth of gross wages was at 3.2%.

According to the office, the drop in wages can be attributed to a smaller number of working days in April.
