The growth of salaries of Russians, which said labor Minister Maxim Topilin, explains the “manipulation” of Rosstat, said the head of the Federation of independent trade unions of Russia (FNPR) Mikhail Shmakov.
“Rosstat convinced Maxim Anatolyevich Topilin that we have an unprecedented growth in the real salaries of 11%. It is not clear who and where it was found. Rosstat is found through manipulation of the methods,” — said Shmakov at the session of the FNPR General Council (quoted by “RIA Novosti”).
Topilin October 24, speaking in the Federation Council, saidthat wages in Russia grew by an “unprecedented rate” of 11% this year. He noted that a special role was played by the establishment of a minimum wage at subsistence level.
