According to the quoted source, the highest values of the average net nominal earnings were registered in IT service activities (including information service activities), respectively 8,273 lei, and the lowest in hotels and restaurants (1,668 lei). "In November 2020, in most activities in the economic sector, the level of average net earnings increased compared to the previous month due to the granting of occasional bonuses (quarterly, annual bonuses, the 13th salary or for outstanding results), rights in kind and monetary aid, amounts from net profit and other funds (including securities). The increases in average net earnings were also due to the resumption of activity of certain economic agents, of production achievements or higher receipts (depending on contract/projects)," mentions the INS.AGERPRES(RO - author: Nicoleta Banciulea, editor: Andreea Marinescu; EN - author: Simona Iacob, editor: Maria Voican)
