SSM demands minimum wage of EUR 450 the first 100 days of the new government in a protest on Labor Day – May 1


The Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia (SSM) is staging Wednesday a protest on International Workers’ Day, demanding rise of wages in the private and public sector, minimum wage at EUR 450 in the first 100 days of the new government, coverage of travel and food expenses in the amount of 20 percent of the average wage etc.

“We have seen that workers’ wages have increased slightly and not corresponding to the rising cost of living, while public officials have seen an enormous 78-percent rise of their wages. If we know that officials hardly survive on 2,500 euros, we, the workers hardly survive on 25,000 and 35,000 Macedonian denars a month. Today the workers have come out to say that they are not satisfied with what has been happening in the past period. First the politicians should satisfy the workers, and then themselves,” said SSM head Slobodan Trendafilov.
