article imageSwiss turn down world's highest minimum wage: pollster

By AFP     May 18, 2014 in World

The Swiss have voted down the world's highest minimum wage, which would have offered workers in one of the world's most expensive nations at least $25 an hour, a polling agency said.

Only 23 percent of Swiss voters came out in favour of introducing a minimum wage of 22 Swiss francs ($25, 18 euros) an hour, or 4,000 francs ($4,515, 3,280 euros) a month, the gps.bern polling institute said in a projection of Sunday's referendum results.
