In Bashkortostan additional reserves for wages growth of workers in the real economy and establishments of public sector are raised.

According to the Ministry of Economic Development RB, in 2011 the monthly average wages grew in nominal terms by 12,3 %, in real terms by 3 %, in January-May, 2012 – accordingly by 14,5 % and 10,7 %.

The monthly average wages of workers of public sector increased by 18 % last year. In the first half of the current year they increased by 19,6 % in relation to the corresponding period of the previous year.
