The size of the living wage decreased in Kamchatka
In Kamchatka, the size of the subsistence minimum for the population will change. It will decrease by almost 50 rubles - from the current 20 652 rubles to 20 604 rubles.
The authorities of the Kamchatka Territory explained the changes by lower prices. According to the press service of the regional government, in October prices for seasonal vegetables fell - potatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage, sugar and some fruits also fell in price. At the same time, prices for a number of products continued to decline in November and December.
Since the cost of living is the sum of the prices of the previous quarter, the indicators reflected on the new size of the minimum. In the fourth quarter of 2019, the subsistence level per capita in the Kamchatka Territory amounted to 20 rubles - 604 rubles less than in the third quarter.
The January rise in prices for bread and dairy products in the Kamchatka Territory will be reflected in the calculation of the cost of living for the first quarter of 2020. These indicators were not taken into account when calculating the minimum for the fourth quarter of last year.
