At the same time, it estimates the extent of the effect of the minimum wage on the examined unemployment indicators. The analysis in the Czech Republic indicated the increase in unemployment as a result of the increase in the minimum wage. In Slovakia both negative and positive effects were confirmed but a negative relationship prevailed. The intensity of the influence effects was moderately strong.
