As of January 1, 2023, the minimum wage will increase. The amounts of the statutory minimum wage apply to a whole working week. Usually, that is 36, 38 or 40 hours a week.

This depends on the sector in which you work and the possible collective agreements that apply to that sector. These collective agreements state how long a typical working week lasts. In supermarkets, for example, a whole working week is 40 hours. For instance, in the hotel and catering industry and greenhouse horticulture, it is 38 hours a week.
