MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - Salaries in Russia’s public sector may grow slower in 2014 if the budget projections proposed by the Finance Ministry are approved, Minister of Labour and Social Security Maxim Topilin said on Tuesday, July 2.
“We think the volumes provided for in the budget projections will not allow us to achieve the ratios approved earlier,” the minister said.
The salaries of teachers, medics and social workers are to be raised to the national average level by 2018.
Topilin said the proposed budget projections are being negotiated with the Finance Ministry.
