The first month of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has left a significant rise in prices, which translates into inflation in our country that it shoots up to 9.8%. A significant increase that is already noticeable in basic goods such as food, fuel or heating.
Prices go up, but wages don’t. On this subject we have spoken with Pepe Álvarez, general secretary of the UGT union, who has spoken about whether salaries should be raised to compensate for this increase in prices.
“A situation like the one we have requires that no one be left behind and, for this, it is essential that salaries reflect the cost of living”, explained Pepe Álvarez live on ‘Todo es true’. “In no case, the unions are going to let the workers be poorer”, added.
“We propose a reasonable increase in agreements and that they have a readjustment at the end of the year, so that salaries are not another important element of the increase in inflation in our country,” explained the general secretary of the UGT. “We workers have to pass on these increases to wages because there is no other way to recover our standard of living.”
