Swiss turn down world’s highest minimum wage: pollster

-

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.
