Bulgarian FinMin Hints of Upping Minimum Wage
Bulgarian Finance Minister Petar Chobanov has said that increasing the minimum wage in the country would be “well-grounded.”
However, he has ruled out introducing a minimum nontaxable income, as trade unions had demanded.
“I believe that we would find a way to increase the minimum wage in 2014,” he said, as cited by the Bulgarian National Radio.
“When it comes to upping the wages in the public sector – if a fiscal opportunity occurs, this may be also done,” he said, refusing to specify a percentage.
The Finance Minister said there were “not enough resources” available for introducing a minimum nontaxable income.
Chobanov also predicted on Wednesday an economic growth by up to 2% in 2014 as a result of the government's policies for stimulating growth and employment.
