On the outcomes of the first quarter of 2018, the Government will consider the possibility of further increase of the minimum wage. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Rozenko on air of the Espreso channel.
"We have to boost economic upturn and receive additional resources to the State Budget. Thus, the decision on raising the size of wages should be, first of all, economically justified", underscored the Vice Prime Minister.
Apart from that, he placed a special emphasis on the fact that the increase of social standards and the level of social protection is a core objective for the Government and added that salaries and pensions will continue to grow.
