The statutory minimum wage will rise to 12 euros an hour from October 1, 2022. In addition, the pay limit for mini-jobs will be increased to 520 euros.

Does this also apply to us at RWTH?
For student assistants at RWTH, this also means an increase in wages and a change in the pay limit starting in October.

Please note that the wage increase may mean that you could reach the salary limit despite the increase and then possibly no longer be covered by your family’s health insurance. You can use the Department 8.1 “Hiwi Comfort Calculator” to find out how much you will earn after the wage increase.

If you have any problems or questions about employment as a student assistant, you can always contact the Student Assistant Representative (BSHK)!
