The state Duma approved the bill about the ratio of wages in state institutions
The state Duma adopted in the first reading the draft law of the Ministry of labor, which involves linking the salaries of managers to the salaries of subordinates in all state institutions, the state and municipal unitary enterprises, as well as extra-budgetary funds and funds of compulsory medical insurance. This is evidenced by the document on the website of the Automated system of ensuring legislative activity.

Information about the average salary, according to the bill, should be posted on the official websites of companies or on the sites of their founders. Labor Minister Maxim Topilin said that the Ministry is awaiting the law already in the middle of the year.
The bill was developed in pursuance of the instructions of President Vladimir Putin on the results of direct line in April 2014, wrote RBC. Then the President complained of low salaries of nurses.
