Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz (pix) said yesterday that his Social Democrats (SPD) were pushing ahead with their election promise to raise the national minimum wage to €12 an hour, as it was important to show respect for low-paid workers.

Social Democrat Labour Minister Hubertus Heil presented a draft law on Friday proposing to increase the wage floor from the current €9.82 from October onwards.

For me, raising the minimum wage to €12 is one of our most important legislative projects and it's a matter of showing respect for the achievements of employees. I'm glad it's on its way now!," Scholz said on Twitter.
