FinMin: Govt Discussing 5% Cut in Public Sector Wage Bill


The minister's comment comes as a response to recent reports that the government was to order all budget users to cut their wage bill by 7.5-15%.

According to Šušteršič, the cabinet is now going through the budget documents and legislation.

On the other hand, Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec said ahead of the government session that layoffs in the public sector were a reality and that the Foreign Ministry would need to cut the wage bill by 10%.

Šušteršič also said that a rise in VAT for printed media, another issue spurring much public debate, has not been discussed today.
