The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, announced this Monday that this year there will be an adjustment in the salaries of the country’s workers:
“We have two very strong objectives. To defend the use of the bolivar, to strengthen our national currency and gradually and definitively recover the workers’ wages. There have been two blows of the economic war, two missiles”, he expressed during his speech at the 3rd national meeting with the Productive Councils of Workers (CPTT), held in La Yaguara, Caracas.
In this sense, he reiterated the need to recover and defend the Venezuelan currency, in a process of using the tools offered by multi-commerce and multi-currency.
Likewise, he responded to speculations and informative matrixes against the Partial Reform of the Tax Law on Large Financial Transactions, discussed by the AN, emphasizing that this law only establishes taxes on large capitals:
“Our line is to charge more to those who have more and charge less or charge nothing to those who have less (…) Does anyone doubt it? There is an ongoing campaign out there trying to cast doubt on the subject, but no. The Reform that was made in the National Assembly is to charge more to those who have more, they have cash, they have how to pay it”, he expressed.
The national president mentioned that public and private banks allow to open accounts in dollars, while explaining to the people that if a person makes a purchase with a value of $27.30 and is not given change, he can pay in bolivars:
“If they tell you, “I don’t have change”, that’s where you say: ‘I don’t care, I’m going to pay you in bolivars, exactly the figure in conversion in bolivars’; (this way) you don’t need to have change back and everyone wins. You win and the merchant wins”, he noted.
Taxes and social investment:
He recalled that the resources collected by the State through the payment of taxes by companies are directed to health, public and social works; wages, housing and the strengthening of the bolivar in the country.
Within the framework of this activity, the Head of State announced the approval of the collective agreement of the working class of the Pequiven petrochemical company, while ordering progress towards the creation of a new integral module of the collective agreement in favor of workers
