MINSK, 23 August (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko recalled the instruction to raise salaries of low-paid workers at the meeting with Prime Minister Sergei Rumas on 23 august, BelTA informs.

“We have received information on salaries today. They are increasing. We had Br1,128 in July. The average salary has increased to Br1,055. It is slightly higher than the government's forecast. Consequently, it imposes additional obligations on us to look for funds and keep salaries in the budget-sponsored sector and labor pensions at the level that you determined – 80% and 40% of the average salary respectively,” Sergei Rumas said at the meeting.

“We agreed to increase salaries of low-paid workers. We need to raise salaries in the social sector, education, healthcare, salaries of the nursing staff in healthcare. We need to support these people. What is the situation there?” the head of state wondered.

“Today the government is focused on giving decent salaries to low-paid workers,” Sergei Pumas said.
