After Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici lobbied against the minimum wage several days ago, Labour Minister Olguta Vasilescu stated that Teodorovici was just expressing a personal opinion, closer to the business environment, yet stressing that such a measure is out of the question, as it is not stipulated in the ruling programme.
“It’s out of the question to remove the minimum wage. There is no such thing in the ruling programme (…) Mr. Teodorovici voiced a personal opinion, which is closer to the business environment. We are very much interested in the employee and what he takes home. Only three years in the EU don’t have a minimum wage. It was his personal opinion, he said how he would see things (…) We all have personal opinions, but only what is in the ruling programme is enforced,” minister Vasilescu pointed out.
