More than one minimum wage hike per year expected

The government has been considering a gradual increase in the minimum salary, as there will be more than one hike a year. This is what the President of CITUB Plamen Dimitrov has told BNR after an informal meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Assen Vassilev.

According to Dimitrov, a small rise from March 1 and a second rise from July 1 are being discussed, so that the minimum wage can reach levels much closer to the cost of living. 870,000 people in this country work for minimum monthly salary and remain poor. The government has ambitions for the minimum wage to rise significantly in comparison to current levels before entering the euro zone, the trade union leader said.
