Abstract: By serving as a floor wage, the national minimum wage is often used as a reference point for national wage policy. The increase of the minimum wage in Malta has not kept pace relative to the increase in the average wage. A Caritas report in 2012 argued that, to ensure a decent living to every citizen, the minimum wage has to be raised. Evidence however seems to point out that wage adjustments which can ensure the maintenance of the pay packet can be better achieved via collective bargaining than through national wage policy fixes. Trade unions have shown that they can resist downward wage flexibility.
