Bill No. 772210-7 has been submitted to the State Duma, aimed at increasing the salary of certain categories of workers and the prestige of socially significant professions.
The bill establishes a guaranteed minimum wage, which employees working in socially significant professions are entitled to count on. It is, in particular, about medical and pedagogical workers, cultural workers, as well as workers engaged in labor activities in social organizations.
The bill establishes a rule according to which all of the above workers should be paid a salary that cannot be lower than twice the cost of living established in the constituent entity of the Russian Federation.
It is proposed to pay cash surcharges to these employees at the expense of regional budgets.
