Highest minimum monthly salary
Geneva is introducing the highest minimum monthly salary in the world this month, in response to a referendum at the end of September. The new hourly rate of 23 Swiss francs ($25.28) will give a minimum monthly salary of 4,000 francs.
This Swiss canton may be rich but it is also home to tens of thousands of hotel workers, waiters, cleaners and hairdressers who struggle to make ends meet.
When Switzerland went into lockdown in March, images of lines of people at food banks in Geneva made headlines.
The new minimum wage will make a difference to many people.
Businesses offering less than 23 francs an hour will now have to give employees a pay rise.
To have to bear this new cost in the middle of the Covid pandemic and a drastic drop in profits could cause more harm than good, fears Vincent Subilia of Geneva's Chamber of Commerce.
