National Liberal Party (PNL) First Vice President Raluca Turcan claims that the wage law is starting to generate “grave discriminations” between the same categories of state institution employees, giving as example a case from Bistrita, where the mayor tripled his wage and hiked his employees’ incomes, and added this will lead to city hall civil servants filing lawsuits.
Turcan refers to PSD’s Bistrita Mayor Ovidiu Cretu and to Bistrita City Hall’s deputy mayors, secretary, chief architect and executive directors, all of whom have “ostentatiously” tripled their wages by using the provisions of the wage law. “The rest of the employees get the crumbs. All of these hikes, many of them arbitrary, are being done with money that should have been invested in education, healthcare and infrastructure projects,” the Liberal stated.
PNL’s First Vice President says that these are the effects of the new law, which generates “grave discriminations.” “I don’t think we’ll have to wait long until city hall civil servants will sue the state for discrimination and abuse. And all under the illusion that PSD has put order into the public sector’s wage system. Who is responsible? The authors of and accomplices to the public funds debauchery and disaster are on holiday, are lecturing us or are behaving coarsely. What did the millions of honest Romanians – who are expecting responsibility and fairness – do wrong?” Turcan wrote on Facebook.
