Salaries should be increased, but it will cause inflation if done all at once, says Kovachevski


Macedonian Prime Minister Dimitar Kovachevski stays firmly on his position that after the increase of the minimum wage, the other wages should also grow, but, as he says, not all at once because it can cause inflationary pressure. Talks with the unions to find solutions continue, Kovachevski stresses, but it is not good that strikes were announced first or are already being organized as a form of pressure, because in the end a solution that everyone will be satisfied with must be found through negotiations.

“I think that all wages should be increased, but that wage increase should be done through a methodological framework that will not be done immediately at some point because it can cause additional inflationary pressure from which no one will benefit given that rising inflation will only eat away at workers’ incomes. That is why the MLSP and the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs and the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Education are in constant talks with all unions that cover different branches of society,” said the Prime Minister in response to media questions.
