Canton Ticino sets a minimum wage level for all workers

The Great Council of Bellinzona approved the law which introduces the minimum salary level for all workers in Canton Ticino.

On Wednesday, 11th December 2019, The Great Council of Bellinzona approved the law which introduces the minimum salary level for all workers in Canton Ticino.

The provision establishes a gradual and progressive increase in minimum wage levels from CHF 19.75 to CHF 20.25 per hour over four years. This increment involves about 13k workers, 60% of which are cross-border workers. The costs for companies have been calculated at around CHF 5 million per year. This measure is meant to discourage the employment of cross-border labor, whose presence in the Italian Canton is significantly influencing public opinion and is fueling political debate.

Nevertheless, it cannot be excluded that this law becomes subject of a popular referendum, due to the potentially negative consequences, such as the progressive reduction of residents’ salary.
