Mitsotakis: Average salary to reach €1500/m by 2027, rules out Easter bonus.

With the latest increase, the minimum wage will exceed 800 euros a month, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in an interview on SKAI television on Tuesday morning, in which he explained that the government was striving to fight the high cost of living by raising salaries.

Mitsotakis said that the high cost of living was now the foremost problem facing Greek households, to which the government was replying by increasing salaries.

He said the goal was for the average salary to reach 1500 euros a month and for the basic wage to be 950 euros per month by 2027. The prime minister noted that wages have already increased and that this is a structural answer, in addition to other measures to lower prices.

He pointed out that the latest measures have brought results with respect to detergents, infant formula and sundry other products, while violations incur fines that must be paid.

The prime minister ruled out an Easter benefit and also referred to the start of afternoon surgeries, which he said would be free, as well as improvements to infrastructure and other measures designed to improve healthcare.

    The foremost problem facing all of us who live in Greece is the Mitsotakis agenda to further destroy families etc. – what this worm seems to not comprehend is that when decent people find themselves unable to properly feed themselves and their families, then hand’s are off in the decency stakes – Mama bear doesn’t placidly roll over when her cubs are crying (and nor should she).
