Business Ombudsman Titov told who in Russia makes a million rubles

According to Titov, one million rubles (about $ 12 thousand) is not so much by the standards of European countries and the United States.

“There are many expats among these people and, of course, our monopolies and big business. High positions are both a great responsibility and qualifications, believe me, no business and no state will offer a lot of money just like that, so this is more likely a justified level in those areas where it is “, – transfers RIA Novosti Titova.

Titov urged to closely check salaries in infrastructure monopolies.

“We have been saying for many years that our monopolies have reserves for optimizing costs, due to which tariffs for industry and the population could not only not grow, but also decrease. Here it is necessary to measure the justification of salaries, as they say, with a magnifying glass in hand, ”said the business ombudsman.

At the same time, he stressed that top management should make good money in any case, but at the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to how exactly the monopoly policy affects the rest of the economy.

“I personally would put the KPI of their leaders not depending on how many taxes the monopoly transferred to the budget, but depending on what multiplier effect the work of the monopoly had on the business of its clients,” Titov summed up.

According to a FinExpertiza study, 17.1 thousand Russians earn from one million rubles a month or more, which is 0.06% of all employees. The number of such workers increased by 51.5% in two years – in April 2019 there were 11.29 thousand people or 0.04%.

Moscow ranked first among the regions in terms of the number of employees with a salary of one million rubles or more (10.4 thousand people). Among the leaders are also St. Petersburg (1.3 thousand) and the Moscow region (1.2 thousand). Most often, such salaries, according to experts, are found in the financial and insurance sectors.
