The basis of economic stability and growth in any state is the middle class, which is formed not by fabled businessmen, but ordinary people of different professions. In Ukraine these are educators, doctors, the military, entrepreneurs. And the key economic objective of the Government is to ensure a decent level of their incomes. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on the air of the Vita TV channel in Vinnytsia.
"The middle class is an entrepreneur, an educator, it is a doctor, it is a highly skilled worker, the military. Those are the people who have to get sufficient resources to satisfy their needs", said Volodymyr Groysman. "And for this purpose we are solving the fundamental issues. For example, we have began to change the system of minimum wages".
The Head of Government stressed that in the draft State Budget for the following year the minimum wage had been set at the level of UAH 5,500. The average salary will also increase. In general, in the medium term, the average salary in Ukraine, according to Volodymyr Groysman, should reach about $ 620 in equivalent. "I understand how to do that", added Volodymyr Groysman.
