Deputy Labour Minister: Social security contributions will not rise

Deputy Labour Minister Tassos Petropoulos on Tuesday in statements to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency’s radio station Praktoreio stressed that social security contributions will not increase.

Petropoulos explained that the contributions will be linked with the real income of the employees.

Asked whether the creation of a single social security fund will put at risk employees, he ruled out that possibility and stressed that the organisations will be strengthened.
