The three conditions for increasing the minimum wage in the economy

The first vice-president of the National Council of Small and Medium Private Enterprises (CNIPMM) in Romania, Ioan Mintaş, said on Thursday, for Agerpresthat this forum agrees with the increase in the minimum wage per economy proposed by the PSD, but with three conditions.

Thus, the first condition enunciates the need to re-discuss the level of contributions and decrease labor taxation, the minimum salary proposal of 3,000 lei can only be accepted with the freezing of contributions, as in agriculture or construction.

The second condition refers to applicability, which must be after the end of winter, from May 2023, not from January 1, because energy costs are difficult for companies to bear.

And last but not least, CNIPMMR believes that the minimum wage should be increased “only on the condition of renouncing the aberration of taxation of part-time contracts”.

“This is the position of CNIPMMR. We have discussed this proposal with Mr. President Florin Jianu, at the office level, and we will send our position to the Government. We agree with the proposal to increase the minimum wage, but with these conditions,” emphasized Ioan Mintaş.

The Minister of Labor and Social Solidarity, Marius Budai, announced on Wednesday that the Social Democratic Party (PSD) will propose to the governing coalition the increase of the minimum wage in the economy to 3,000 gross lei.

According to him, the PSD wants 2,800 lei from the minimum wage per economy to be taxed, and 200 lei to be exempt from paying contributions to the state budget.
