The minimum wage on Tuesday rose from NIS 4100 to NIS 4300 per month; the hourly minimum wage also increased to NIS 23.12.

Youth minimum wages were also augmented, with the hourly rate of workers 16 years and under rising to NIS 17.49; the minimum hourly rate for 17-year-olds now stands at NIS 20.63.

It is a criminal offense in Israel to pay laborers less than the legislated minimum wages.
