The minimum wage in Moscow will increase to 12,600 rubles ($384) a month starting in January, with a further 250-ruble raise planned for July.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin signed the order after negotiations with the city's trade unions and employers' associations, an unidentified official said, Interfax reported Tuesday.
In July, the minimum wage in the capital was raised from 11,700 rubles to 12,200 rubles.
The average monthly wage in the city is about 57,000 rubles, a city official said in October. The official country-wide minimum wage, as decreed by President Vladimir Putin this year, is 5,205 rubles.
