Over the past year in the Amur region, salaries were raised for public sector employees by 6 billion rubles

The head of the Amur Region, Oleg Kozhemyako, on the recording of the "Governor's Hour" program, spoke about federal projects that will support the region in difficult times, shared why piglets will be sold to Amur residents, and also commented on his sensational proposal to the Chairman of the Russian government Dmitry Medvedev to the EastRussia correspondent.

In January 2015, at a meeting with the heads of regions in Moscow, Oleg Kozhemyako made a proposal to freeze the effect of Vladimir Putin's "May decrees" on increasing payments to public sector employees until October 2015.

Such an initiative, according to the head of the region, is connected with the fact that the salary of state employees is tied to the average for the region. For the current year, it was forecasted within 34800 rubles, but taking into account the current situation it will be about 32000. “It turns out that state employees will lose. And take on additional obligations not secured by funding ...? I don't know, but is there any point? ", - answered Oleg Kozhemyako

“I really think that it is better not to be scattered, to slow down and keep at least what we have, but at the end of October to see how we can add. We need to look at things realistically, proceed from the capabilities of the country and the budget and pay according to labor, so that it does not happen in the middle of the year that there is simply nothing to pay salaries with ”, - the Governor of the Amur Region explained to the EastRussia correspondent.

The head of the region also noted that only last year in the Amur region workers in the budgetary sphere were raised by 6 billion rubles.
