Diário de Notícias

Diário de Notícias was founded in Lisbon in 1864 and quickly grew into a mass-circulation newspaper. During the country's almost 50 years of dictatorship (1926-1974) it was regarded as the regime's inofficial press organ. After the Carnation Revolution Diário was nationalised, and was pro-communist for a long time until its re-privatisation in 1991. Today this liberal-conservative paper is one of Portugal's leading newspapers.

German minimum wage brings more fairness

The German parliament approved the draft law for a nationwide minimum wage by a large majority on Thursday. As of 1 January 2015 with some exceptions all employees over 17 years of age are to receive a minimum of 8.50 euros per hour of work. The step was long overdue, the liberal-conservative daily Diário de Notícias comments: "The debate about the impact of a minimum wage on labour costs and consumption and its contribution to social balance and social justice will continue. ... Even though the minimum wage won't apply until January and there will be transitional arrangements for certain sectors, it is a major step towards social justice. Indeed, it would be incomprehensible if this measure wasn't implemented in one of the world's largest economies."

Another setback for the Treaty of Lisbon

The daily Diário de Notícias observes with concern the collapse of the Czech government, particularly in view of the possible repercussions for the ratification of the Lisbon treaty: "The collapse of the Czech government while the country holds the EU presidency creates an awkward situation. … In Prague the Treaty of Lisbon has yet to be passed by the Senate. The aversion of Czech President Václav Klaus to the treaty is well known, as is his desire to delay or even prevent its ratification in the Czech Republic. Even if the government remains in office until the end of the EU Council presidency in June, it is nonetheless yet another blow for the Lisbon treaty. We shall have to wait and see whether it proves to be fatal."
