A poll showing that the vast majority of the population feels that the new regional minimum wage, set at 785 euros, is not enough to mitigate the weight of inflation.
The president stresses that the idea of the Regional Government “is to work on economic growth, to ensure competitiveness for businesses and income so that they do not have to pay the minimum wage to workers.”
