When asked about Prime Minister Rama’s promise to raise the average wage to 900 euros on “A2BUSINESS,” economy expert Kastriot Sulka stated that this is an electoral promise.
The reason for this decision, according to Sulka, is the upcoming elections, and he noted that it is difficult to find salary categories and employees in the public administration that are comparable to those in the private sector.
What do you think of Rama’s promise, Mr. Sulka?
Without a doubt, it’s an election promise. We are currently growing at a rate of about 6%. We have almost no impact on people’s bank accounts. Meanwhile, we’re promising about 18%, or roughly three times what was done in these conditions when we said we’d make an effort. So, from this vantage point, we need to know what the cause was, and the cause is the elections. When the minimum wage rises, it may impose a kind of obligation on the entire salary scale in the country. To be honest, we rarely find salary categories and employees in the public sector that are comparable to those in the private sector, such as fashion. It’s critical to understand where this money comes from and where it goes.”
