Imminent pay raises for private sector workers, says Labor Min Vroutsis

Some 1,985,000 workers in the private sector will see salary increases early in 2021, as a result of reduced social insurance contributions taking effect on January 1, Labor Minister Giannis Vroutsis told Alpha Radio on Monday.

Moreover, several positive changes in the country’s social insurance system are also soon to come, he added. Retroactive pension payouts are another issue that will be settled in the very near future, noted the minister.
