In 2017, the Russian workers will increase wages by 2-3%. In an interview with “Kommersant” said the chief specialist on issues of wages the International labour organization (ILO) in Geneva, Patrick Belzer.
“This year, wages have a tendency to significant growth, maybe 2-3%, and with the prospect of higher growth next year,” said Belzer, noting that statistics in relation to wages in Russia should be taken with caution, as information about paid media is not always served in full.
According to Belzer in Russia patch was always a corrective factor of structural features of the economy and was not determined by status of employment, and the changing situation in the economy. So, according to him, during the first decade of the transition period, real wages fell by more than half, and since 2000 have doubled.
