Retirement need to work hard

In order for a low-income Russian to retire, they will have to work 128 years. This was stated by experts polled by the publication Ura.ru, reports PRIMPRESS.

It turned out that in order to receive the minimum pension in Russia, some citizens will have to work for over a hundred years. We are talking about those Russians whose wages do not reach the minimum wage rate. According to the vice-rector of the Academy of Labor and Social Relations, Alexander Safonov, before the May decrees, many state employees had a salary of 5–6 thousand rubles a month, which is much lower than the minimum wage.

“According to our calculations, when a person’s salary is lower than the minimum wage, it will take 128 years to work for him to save up for a minimum pension on his own,” the expert notes.
