Among the measures to be included are:

– Market Pass: Extension of the measure for three more months (August, September and October)

– Youth Pass: In September, the youth pass will be granted for the first time to those who turn 18 this year. A bonus of 150 euros will be credited to their digital wallet or bank account.

– Reducing the penalty for working pensioners: The “penalty” deduction of 30% of pensionable earnings for working pensioners is expected to be abolished immediately.

– Salary increases in the public sector: Establishment of a new salary scale for public sector employees with substantial increases in family allowances and allowances for position of responsibility and the entry salary of a public sector employee with compulsory education to be increased from 780 euros today to around 840 euros.
