When the working time is shorter than the customary working time, the statutory (youth) minimum wage will be in proportion to the hours worked.

Hourly wage

The hourly wage may vary across the sectors, depending on the number of hours that is agreed upon as the customary working time. The customary working time is defined as the working time which has been agreed upon for full-time employment in a certain sector. In most collective labour agreements the working time of full-time employment is 36, 38 or 40 hours per week.
