Brace: Youth unemployment is the problem
DP MP Erion Braçe stated in today's plenary session that youth unemployment is a problem that reflects their emigration, as well as low wages.
"YOU EMPLOYMENT IS THE ESSENTIAL! Unemployment among them is high, this also reflects emigration. Beyond employment, the problem related to them-the young people, is the salaries;
We are competed not only by the real and legal economy of our neighbors and the wider economies in Europe, but also by the economy of crime, drug houses in Spain, Belgium, Holland, England, etc.; WAGES THERE ARE MUCH MUCH MUCH HIGHER THAN REAL WAGES HERE;
The average gross salary reached 60,666 ALL, but the vital sectors with extensive employment have salaries much lower than the national average;
AGRICULTURE-HAS SALARIES 34% LOWER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE;
ELEMENTARY PROFESSION WORKERS HAVE SALARIES 36.3% LOWER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE.
And there is a reason;
It is the fiscal policy that we "reconstructed" that overturned everything good done from 2014-2019, especially with the AGRICULTURAL VAT, which has reflected so strongly on the salaries of qualified workers and not only in agriculture.
Look, everyone wants higher salaries; yesterday I heard someone who also comes to this hall and who has killed for lek, say that the salary should be 1000 euros; BUT WE DID NOT FIND THE WAY 1000 EUROS AND DID IT 600;
On the contrary, the average gross salary in 2011 was 46 thousand Lek, today it is 68 thousand Lek, the minimum salary was 20 thousand Lek, today it is 34 thousand Lek.
Should salaries be higher than that? WE NEED IT!
BUT FOR THEM, THE ECONOMY, PRODUCTION NEEDS TO INCREASE!" , says Brace.
