To complete this paper there have been used methods of analysis, comparison, induction and deduction, percentage of positive and negative answers and Pearson’s chi-squared test. The research revealed that majority of companies would embrace minimum wage derived from average wage and yearly minimum wage inflation adjustment. Although, approximately one half of the respondents believe that the minimum wage makes it harder to employ low-skilled workers.
