Ascent will increase its monthly income to 705 euros and to 750 euros by 2023. The rate of increase for private and civil servants is the same.
The national minimum wage is expected to increase by about 40 euros next year, an increase of nearly 6% compared with the current 665 euros. The information has been forwarded to Dinheiro Vivo by official news from the Ministry of Finance. This increase will increase the amount by 705 euros per month.
This pledge will reach 750 euros per month by the end of the legislature in 2023 and is part of the government’s plan. “Deepen the multi-year trajectory of the actual update of the national minimum wage in a phased, predictable and continuous manner, and develop annually based on the dynamics of employment and economic growth, with the goal of reaching 750 euros by 2023,” if in the document. When the executive announced the increase to 665 euros, this goal was reiterated earlier this year.
According to an official source from the João Leão office, “it is expected that the guaranteed minimum monthly salary (RMMG) will increase by about 6% each year” and “it will reach 750 euros/month by 2023”.
Taking these values into account, the minimum wage will increase by 49% compared to when PS was supported by BE and PCP in 2015 when he assumed the leadership of an executive in a so-called “dilemma”. Relatively speaking, the number of new additions expected in the next two years is also the most generous of the two legislative bodies led by Antonio Costa.
According to DV calculations, this difference will raise the minimum wage to 704.9 euros (705 euros, rounded up) in 2022, and to reach the 750 euros target in 2023, greater efforts must be made, which is 6, 4%.
There will be more than 800,000 people by then, accounting for about one-fifth of the total number of employees.
According to DV’s first-hand report, the 30 euro increase set for this year is accompanied by a promise of compensation to the company, but so far, the mechanism is unclear. In an interview with DN/TSF, the Minister of Economic Affairs promised in February that the support will start operating in March, with compensation of “approximately 80%” of the fees charged by the single social rate (TSU). )”.
In the past 12 years, the national minimum wage has changed nominally every year, but the minimum wage between 2012 and mid-2014 was frozen at 485 euros per month.
In recent years, four levels of TRU have been consumed, which is not commensurate for the civil service union. The government intends to review this situation within the scope of negotiations that began this month, and it also involves changes to the worker evaluation system, SIADAP.
There is nothing to say about the new “stability plan” proposed by the government. Both of these review procedures will have an impact on the increase in public spending in the next few years.
As for the impact of the increase in the minimum wage, it is expected to increase by 72 million euros next year. According to DV’s calculations, this would be enough to increase the salary of 103,896 civil servants who receive the minimum wage-this range is in line with the estimated 100,000 workers who receive the minimum wage in the public administration. To the past few years.
As of 2023, the expected impact of rising minimum wages on personnel costs has risen sharply, reaching 116 million euros, and the government has not provided an explanation for such a large increase in monthly wages to guarantee the new value of the minimum wage.
Again, according to DV’s calculations, considering the increase from 705 Euros to 750 Euros, this amount will be enough to increase the basic salary of 148,782 civil servants who receive the minimum wage (and increase the social security contributions proportionally). This number represents a wider range of workers with minimum wages: about 45,000.
When asked how the fees calculated by the Ministry of Finance reflect or do not reflect the ongoing negotiation and review process of the civil service, the Ministry of Public Administration only mentioned that the “stability plan 2021-2025 is expected to pass the state’s technical training to the country”. Hire high-level technical personnel, improve their status, and establish competence centers.” He added that these measures “have been formulated by the state and public administration modernization government within the framework of the SIDAP review, and SIDAP is discussing with the trade unions.”
