Budai insists on the minimum wage

The economic and social context requires a measure to increase the minimum wage, because in Romania you cannot live on the minimum wage, the Minister of Labor, Marius Budai, declared for Digi24 on Saturday.

“The economic and social context require a measure to increase the minimum wage. I understand what the business community is saying, but you must also understand that employees also have to pay their utilities, take their children to school and feed their children. This week, in the Social Dialogue Commission of the Ministry of Labor, we started discussions with the business environment and with the employees, with the social partners”, said Budai.

He mentioned that later the discussions will move to the tripartite National Council, where the prime minister and the ministers are also, so that a predictable decision can be made from January 1.

“We do not intervene during the year, so that budgets for the following year and business plans for the following year can be built. PSD’s proposal for this winter’s measures, in addition to increasing pensions, is 3,000 (minimum salary, no), with the 200 lei deducted from taxation, that is 2,800 taxed and 200 not. There is clearly a positive impact on employees and even employers, because employers also complain about the lack of labor. In Romania, you can’t live on the minimum wage”, emphasized the Minister of Labor and Social Solidarity.

Currently, the minimum gross salary is 2,550 lei.
