Attorney General Menahem Mazuz decided to raise the minimum wage by 3.5% on Wednesday night, thereby reversing the Finance Ministry's decision and adopting the opinion of the National Insurance Institute. Beginning in April 2006, minimum wage will stand at NIS 3,457 per month - a NIS 122 increase. The Finance Ministry asked to freeze the current minimum wage until the elections at the end of March, due to the Knesset's dispersal about a month ago. It based its request on Basic Law: Knesset, according to which the increase must be frozen, legally, until after elections.
