On November 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss with the government the provision of the level of wages of certain categories of state employees established by decrees of the head of state. This is reported on website administration of the president.
The President said that the salaries of employees in the public sector should be transparent and fair, it is necessary to take into account the income of each specific specialist, “and not just average indicators.”
The topic of public sector wages became central at a meeting between Putin and members of the government on February 10. The head of state stressed that the flaws with the salaries of this category of citizens must be cleaned up.
The President explained that it is necessary to explain the procedure for the formation of salaries to employees of budgetary organizations so that everything is clear, clear and transparent. At the same time, he noted that the salaries of public sector employees may differ from region to region, and this is normal. There are situations when the base rate in one region differs for institutions of the same type located “on the same street,” the president specified.
Putin also criticized the practice of adjusting the salary indicators for public sector employees, designed to comply with the formal requirements established by decrees in the reports. He recalled that in 2017 the government submitted a report on the implementation of the “May” decree, and the current composition of the Cabinet should build its policy in the same way.
