The government is discussing today (Weds) a draft law that will limit the wages of public sector employees working in the state-owned companies, local press informs.
Recently, Premier Victor Ponta said that the cabinet is considering the extra taxation by 16 percent of the wages from the public sector of all salaries over 1,000 Euros a month.
After it took over the government in late April, the Social Liberal Union cabinet found out that state owned companies with debts to the state budget are paying wages worth thousands of Euros for fictive jobs.
Ponta said revealed that the father of the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies Roberta Anastase receives 7,200 Euros a month from a state owned company for counselling services.
The government also intends to extend the period decided by the previous right-wing government for the capping of salaries and bonuses of the administrative staff in state owned companies, at the level of the wage of a state secretaries from 5,000 Euros to some 1,200 Euros.
"I don't think it's normal that in state-owned companies people below the manager† have wages worth thousands of Euro. We know very well what happened, the Boc governement capped the salaries of the managers, but all the deputy directors and other management personnel to have higher salaries, even higher than in multinational companies", Ponta said ahead of the cabinet sitting.
