According to experts of Avito.Rabota, in the first quarter of 2020 in Russia there was a decrease in salaries. Employees in the banking sector lost the most in salaries.

According to RIA News, on average, employer salary offers fell by 1,8%. However, there are professions in which employers, by contrast, are willing to pay more than in 2019. So, the salaries of doctors, security guards and mass professions without work experience increased: movers, drivers, packers. Most of all, proposals for builders increased: the average growth in the country in the first quarter of 2020 amounted to 10% in this industry. Salaries of atoservice workers increased by about the same amount.

In addition, salaries increased in several large cities: Moscow (by 0,8%), Novosibirsk (1,5%), Kazan (0,3%), Izhevsk (0,6%) and Tyumen (0,8%) . In other cities, employers began to reduce the proposed salaries.

The largest collapse among employers' offers was shown by the banking sector. Bankers began to offer 11% less than at the end of 2019. The average decline in all other sectors, in addition to the “price-rising” professions, was 1,8%.

In a quarantine environment, employers are increasingly cutting costs. Some of them transfer employees to a remote mode of work, introduce four day work week, and some - reduce salaries or cut employees. Moreover, about 30% of employers could not pay previous salary to employees.
