At the 43rd gathering of Sterlitamac town council on October 29 the President of Bashkortostan promised to raise wages in Bashkiria one and a half times for four years.

According to the President RB the wages of the budget employees can be raised even earlier – by 2013.

“I urge the heads of the industrial enterprises to follow this example” – Rustem Khamitov mentioned – “I don’t mean the wages have to be paid in time, it goes without saying, but they have to be worthy”.

At present time the average wage in Bashkiria is equal to 15600 rubles and this is not much for the region of such level as our Republic. By this showing Bashkiria is found on the 40-45th place in Russian Federation and on the fifth place in Volga federal district. The average wage in Russia makes up 20300 rubles now.
