Unions for doubling the minimum wage

The current size of the minimum wage (minimum wage) has long ceased to correspond to realities and require revision.

In a conversation with journalists "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" Mikhail Shmakov, head of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions (FNPR), spoke about the need to amend the Labor Code, which determines the level of allowances in the minimum wage.

The head of the FNPR said that by the decision of the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation all incentive and compensation allowances for special working and living conditions should be accrued on the minimum wage.

In his opinion, the measures provided for by the law adopted last year on the equalization of the minimum wage and the subsistence level with annual indexation, today do not solve the problem.

Mikhail Shmakov emphasized:

Today's living wage no longer meets the real, even minimal, needs of people

He also noted that the organization he heads will insist on changing the methodology for calculating the consumer basket and expanding it to the size of the minimum consumer budget.

The publication provides an explanation of Shmakov:

Its size is about twice as much as the current cost of the consumer basket, about 25 thousand rubles

    Shmakov has been in charge of trade unions since 1986, and there was no sense from him, no, and will not be, but what he says there again is another noodle on our ears, and we feed him and his family from the state budget. , Mikhail, would ask Mr. LADY why a simple "servant of the people", a deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, receives 800000-1000000 rubles a month, while a simple hard worker, doctor or teacher, receives only 20-25 thousand rubles for a similar month, I'm not talking about Moscow, they have lived there for a long time as under communism. Okay, there, the difference in salaries is 3-4 times, but not 30-40 times, as it is done now. Explain to us, the poor, why this happens ...

      Good morning Valentine! I know. Surely, the whole country is aware of the posters we had in Yaroslavl about our "servants of the people" (sorry they didn't hang long), but they also saw and read, incl. and on VO about this event. What pleases me is not so much the voice (squeak) of Shmakov HIMSELF (of course, he only voiced), but a thread may be pulled further behind this. It's about white and black salary. Well, we do not get normal workers 20-25 thousand !!!! So the authorities were in vain with the pension reform, oh, in vain ...

    It is high time to determine the real cost of living and bring the minimum income to it. The recent increase in MRO has brought tangible results. On two jobs they began to pay me a completely "white" salary. At the same time, increasing it a little.

      And what is the "living wage" you, Volodya, are talking about when the "servants of the people" have one, but the people themselves have another, to which you can only stretch your legs. You ask what prices are in the dining room of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, there is Soviet prices, i.e. kopecks, but go to any of our eatery, snack, and there you will be ripped off like a sticky-for a cup of coffee and a sandwich from you they will take no less than your daily earnings, or even more. We are not a trade union now, but state pooch , and serve that.

    Fresh tradition, but hard to believe. Let them return at least the level of salaries that was before 2013. In December 2012, I received 22 thousand, and in December 2018 at the same place of work - 13860 rubles. A neighbor from another company generally receives 200 rubles a day, because nothing to pay salaries. The province was finally driven out, having sucked all the juices out of it to Moscow. We do not live here, but survive ...
