In order to determine the minimum wage, which concerns the whole of Turkey, especially 7 million employees, a Minimum Wage Determination Commission of 15 people, composed of representatives of the government, workers and employers, is determined. This commission, chaired by one of the members determined by the Ministry, convenes with the participation of at least 10 members and makes its decisions by majority vote. In case of equality of votes, it is accepted that the party with the president has the majority. The minimum wage is currently 6 thousand 471 liras per month gross for a worker, and 5 thousand 500 liras net 35 cents when taxes and deductions are deducted.
