Minimum wage established for Sverdlovsk region
Effective October 1, 2013, those working in industrial positions in the Sverdlovsk region will receive a minimum wage of $200. Additionally, the agreement allows any foreign worker who enters an employment contract must be aided by a trade union, Ural Business Consulting reports.
With the new minimum wage legislation, the Sverdlovsk government and private employers within the region hope to provide employees with socioeconomic stability. The current draft of the minimum wage agreement contains nearly 300 paragraphs, of which seven are still up for negotiation between the government, the employers and the labor unions.
Prime Minister Denis Pasler signed the agreement on behalf of the Sverdlovsk regional government, according to Ural Business Consulting.
