Minimum wage regulations

In Norway, minimum-wage regulations have traditionally been left to the autonomy of the labour market parties. The extensive labour migration from Central and East European EU countries has changed this picture. Migrant workers often are not covered by regular collective agreements, which have led to an increasing low-wage competition in the Norwegian labour market. Thus, generally applicable collective agreements have now been introduced into several of the sectors that have recruited high numbers of migrant workers.
