" [Este é] a struggle that we did not give up despite opposition of PS, PSD and CDS to the project of valorizing the minimum wage that the PCP presented in the Parliament of the Republic of Slovenia a few days ago. Workers who produce wealth and wealth must be distributed in a fair way, "said Jeronimo de Sousa at a public session on PCP intervention.
The Communist leader stressed that PCP will continue to fight for general wage appreciation, including setting a national minimum wage to "650 euros on January 1, 2019".
"As long as there are low wages, there will be fewer reforms, and the fight to increase wages is an important battle," he said.
The Secretary General of the Communists also argued that the existing statistics show that "the government's theories of PSD and CDS" were wrong and that "exploitation and impoverishment" was not necessary.
"PSD and CDS governments have said it is necessary to sacrifice, it is inevitable that the policy of exploitation and impoverishment will continue in those four years and in the coming years if they were the government. And, in the end, life proved that this time it was not inevitable exploitation and impoverishment.According to all statistical data, it can be seen that the economy has grown and that people have a consumer capacity, "he said.
For Jeronim de Sousa, "the method of valorizing wages is good for the economy, it is good for the country and good for workers."
