If we look at the minimum salary in Tunisian dinars, which is the official currency in Tunisia, we can see that, this year, it was 259.0 Tunisian dinars and accordingly, the national minimum wage has been raised 13.0 Tunisian dinars per month from the previous year, 5.28%. This increase is less than the CPI of 2012 which was 5.9% ,and so workers, despite the raise, have lost buying power in the last year.
