After the increase of the minimum wage in the amount of another 400 thousand Lek that comes into force from April, Prime Minister Edi Rama has announced another scheme for wages.
It is about the average salary and according to him, a new scheme is being studied for all salaries.
“We are now looking at the average wage because the minimum wage increase is very close. We will do a balancing wage increase to start with and we are looking at a new whole wage scheme going forward. It’s very difficult, but it can be done. I urge you to do the same, and believe me, you, the whole enterprise, should do the same. Do not play with employees. It is not played! That time is gone. Businesses that gamble with their employees gamble with their fortunes. The employee is more important than the new car, than the yacht, than the next villa on the sea. If you want all this now, it will happen exactly that my donkey died just when I taught it not to eat”declared the Prime Minister.
Rama made these comments during a meeting with entrepreneurs and large businesses to whom he called to increase the salaries of their employees. /broread
