They are marching to the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, where they will demand a meeting with Minister of Labor and Social Policy JovankaTrenchevska.
Pensioners are demanding a linear increase in payments as well as that the minimum pension be raised to equal the minimum wage.

Pensioners protested in their cities in the past few days, expressing dissatisfaction with the percentage increase in pensions.
