As international financial organizations urge the government to change the unique salary law for the budgetary sector, Gandul highlights the main changes which the government considers.
The official names of functions will be changed: for example, there will be no longer assistant manager positions, only secretaries.
The salary difference between people employed in various sectors on the same position will disappear. There will be bigger differences to mark hierarchies. Overall, salary spending will have to remain the same but in order to increase big salaries, the government will have to cut from the small ones.
On the other hand, the labour code is not as flexible as the EC and IMF want it to be and the government fears that if it it will increase flexibility, fiscal evasion will also increase.
