The introduction of the hourly minimum wage in Russia will give working citizens additional guarantees. In general, it is necessary to raise the minimum wage.
But not all Russians work full-time, so the hourly minimum wage will help protect those who work on short-term contracts. This opinion was expressed in a conversation with journalists by the head of the State Duma Committee on Labor and Social Policy Yaroslav Nilov.
Earlier it became known that Russia is considering the possibility of introducing an hourly minimum wage. This item is included in the list of proposals to the draft text of the general agreement between the all-Russian associations of trade unions, employers and the government for 2021–2023. According to the project, the minimum wage can be set at 150 rubles per hour. A prerequisite is the conclusion of a fixed-term contract for hiring part-time. Further, the hourly minimum wage will be indexed every year in accordance with inflation. The authors of the initiative are deputies from the Liberal Democratic Party.
As noted by Nilov, the minimum wage must be increased and maintained as a value by which the minimum income is guaranteed to a citizen in the performance of labor duties during an eight-hour working day, five days a week.
Moreover, if such a concept as the minimum cost of an hour is introduced, this should be an additional guarantee for our citizens. The issue is not about the shift to hourly wages everywhere. This approach will stimulate the growth of the minimum wage., - leads TV channel "360" words of the head of the State Duma committee on labor and social policy.
As chernayakobra.ru previously wrote, the RF Government Commission on Legislative Activities refused to support the bill on the introduction of a minimum wage per hour.
