ABSTRACT
The mining of brown coal in the Ore Mountains basins in the North Bohemia region of the Czech Republic has a long tradition. The brown coal mining is irreplaceable not only for the development of industry and industrial agglomerations, but also in the "life" of the inhabitants of Northern Bohemia and even for the development of particular regions. Without brown coal mining people would not be employed. Therefore, they would not be able to ensure the livelihood for their families. Consequently, high unemployment rate in the region would result in the deterioration of the services provided in the region. It is necessary to bear in mind that the unemployment has an impact on the income and the expenditure of the State budget of the country concerned, because the unemployment benefits are derived from the amount of salary. The aim of submitted paper is to evaluate the development of average salary in the selected companies engaged in brown coal mining in relation to both average salary in the sector and the average salary in the Czech Republic in the period of 2008 – 2012. In addition to salary development, the evolution of labour productivity indicators in selected companies engaged in the brown coal mining need to be further investigated, too. Last but not least, the evolution of labour productivity indicators needs to be compared with the development of unemployment indicators as well.

Keywords: average salary, unemployment, labour productivity, mining of brown coal
