Only 21% of Russian companies intend to index or increase salaries for their employees - this is the lowest figure since 2016, when the share was only 15%. Last year, 32% of companies in the country announced their intention to raise wages to their employees.

From the results of a survey of the Superjob service, cited by RBC, it follows that 51% of employers are not going to raise their employees' salaries in the near future. This figure was the highest in the last four years. In 2016, this answer was given by 62% of respondents from among CEOs. In 2019, there were less than half of them - 40%. In 2020, about a third - 28% - found it difficult to answer.

Wage increases or indexation took place in 38% of Russian companies. And employees of 20% of organizations have not seen a salary increase for more than two years.

Analysts note that they are planning to raise wages or have recently done so by organizations from the construction or manufacturing sectors, medical organizations, telecom and IT companies, government agencies in which earnings depend on the minimum wage.

A survey of workers themselves showed that 36% of them expect a salary increase in the new year. In 2019, there were 42% of them. Among employees who receive more than 80 thousand rubles, 41% are expecting an increase.

The recently compiled rating of RIA Novosti showed that most of all workers in Russia with salaries over one hundred thousand rubles this year turned out to be in the Far North and in Moscow. But the North Caucasus turned out to be the leader in the number of workers with a salary of less than 15 thousand rubles. Earlier it was noted that the highest salary appetites are among Muscovites, who, on average, would like to have an income of 182 thousand rubles a month.

At the same time, the Federation Council announced the volume of unofficial wages. According to Anatoly Artamonov, Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Budget and Financial Markets, the volume of the unofficial wages fund in Russia exceeds 10 trillion rubles, and at least 25 million people are involved in shadow employment - almost every third working Russian.
