    Given how much the rent now costs, you can’t live on that money, and there’s not enough money for food, clothing and medicine! Salaries of 12500 rubles today in the Russian Federation can only offer fascists!

      You can refuse a salary. Promotion does not oblige to receive.

    My neighbor has not been able to sell his apartment of 100 sq.m for two years now. He has a pension of 13 thousand rubles, and now pays 10 thousand rubles for a communal apartment. Dropped the price so that it was enough to buy a smaller area. And I remember the times when, with a minimum wage of 70 rubles, the rent was 6-12 rubles. According to Delyagin, having increased salaries and benefits, purchasing power of the population will increase, housing and communal services debts will disappear, in general, the economy will revive. But our government is worried that the people will live richer! Sausage from the shops will disappear!

    I work two jobs and both have previously received "gray and white" salaries. It is impossible to fight this. If you don't want to, quit. To complain? Well, too, everything will end with the dismissal. With the increase in the minimum wage, these gray-white salaries have become meaningless and are now paid honestly. Well, deductions to the state, of course, increased. The wife works in a large chain supermarket, and also receives double salary for now. Apparently, until the minimum wage is raised to 20 thousand rubles, so this double-entry bookkeeping will be. Moreover, almost all business owners are deputies.
    Although, after raising the retirement age, I did not care about contributions to the FIU and other contributions. Medical services get paid for their hard-earned money. Well, yes, you can get the tax deduction. On this, in fact, all the motivation ended.

        But while the minimum wage is rising faster than salaries. There is hope that will catch up. At the same time, prices.
