State employees are deprived of higher wages
The state has no obligation to Fund under the estimateIn 2010, the government refused indexation of salaries of state employees because of the crisis. However, in 2011, state employees can remain without additions to earnings. Yesterday, several close to the government sources said that the adopted before the law on Autonomous institutions puts an end to the existing practice of raising wages in the public sector. Now the increase in earnings will be very individual and will depend on a number of circumstances: dismissal of colleagues, health care reform or the Ministry of internal Affairs, as well as the amount of government grants to individual institutions.Yesterday the interior Minister promised to increase the average salary of policemen to 35-55 thousand rubles, but stressed that this increase will occur simultaneously with the layoffs of policemen and a total reform of the interior Ministry.The rest of the public sector - for example, doctors and teachers - a General increase in wages even in an election year, 2011 should not count. Speaking in the state Duma with the report on the activities of the government, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin promised to consider the fall issue of the indexation of wages to workers of budgetary sphere. However, experts say, adopted a week earlier, the law on budgetary and Autonomous state institutions virtually eliminates "front" the salary increase. The mechanism of government jobs and funding does not provide automatic indexing.State employees are deprived of higher wagesThe state has no obligation to Fund under the estimate"Previously, from December 1, 2008, immediately a 30% rise in funds of pay in the Federal public sector. We, as promised, let's consider the question of raising the salaries of state employees and military salaries and military pensions, stipends students. Will do it this fall, considering the state budget", - said Putin. Such statements have raised optimism. The plans of the Prime Minister confirmed yesterday and the Finance Ministry. "The question on indexation of public sector wages in 2011 would be considered further by the results of execution of the Federal budget for 2010", - reported in the Ministry.However, as explained yesterday, the experts, the new legislation does not involve centralized wage increase - no election in 2011 or later. The provisions of the law on Autonomous institutions introduced from 1 January 2011 a new mechanism of financial provision of budgetary institutions, which provides for the transfer of the estimated funding for grants in the framework of the state assignment. State Duma Deputy Oksana Dmitriyeva said that "this law actually completely puts an end to clear the indexation of public sector wages and on the very concept of "state employee", because the state has no obligation to Fund under the estimate". "I just even technically now I can't imagine how you will carry out the indexation of salaries of state employees, if everything is determined by the funding of specific tasks," says Dmitriev.As explained, in turn, the main scientific employee of the wages and incomes of the Institute of labour and social insurance Ministry of Robert Yakovlev, "Russia is developing so-called system of budgeting by results. That is, wages will not be indexed for a reason, and only as part of the restructuring and optimization. Indexing will be current and not automatic as it was before." As part of these measures, the expert believes, will increase the autonomy and efficiency of public organizations: some will expand its operations through additional paid services, some will become Autonomous, some are fully commercial, and some will remain on budget and Treasury. And the public will be treated now only the army, security forces, detention centres, psychiatric hospitals, leper colony, etc. In the health Ministry added that "the first half will be consulted in the course of which and will discuss possible scenarios for the wage increase. This will be taken into account several essential factors: inflation, the results of transition to new system of payment of state employees, the financial resources of the Federal budget and budgets of subjects".Disappointing conclusions of the economists who suggest that the most likely scenario in 2011 would be the lack of indexation of salaries of state employees. "Even with the gradual recovery of the economy, the increase in social spending at this stage is dangerous for the country's budget. Next year loaded with recent increases in pensions, the Pension Fund will be forced to patch holes, and extra revenue will be spent on it", - said the expert of Department of an assessment of "2K Audit - Business consulting" Irina Vorobieva. Although, remind political scientists, next year's election. So, it is logical that the government would deploy the battle for the electorate and begin to encourage potential voters with a salary increase. And then, says Deputy Director of Center of political technologies Alexey Makarkin, this will primarily affect doctors and teachers. "First of all, it is an active group who are disciplined enough to vote. Secondly, it is socially meaningful groups, and increase their wages - a measure that reflects the whole of society," says Makarkin. However, drew attention Dmitrieva, is not so rosy. Now due to the adopted law, the state can declare anything - even the fact that the index is 30%. But it can be reduced to any specific budgetary institution scheduled job. For example, the school designed for 600 students, planned to give the job and provide the financing only for 300 students. In this assignment, may be, and will perform the indexing, but then announced the percent of highly disperse with real specific funding agencies.
