The two recommendations were rejected with PS, PSD and IL voting against, Chega abstaining and in Favor of PCP, BE, PAN and Livre.
In its draft resolution, the PCP recommended that the Government increase the minimum wage to 850 euros as early as January of the next year.
The BE party also proposed an increase to 800 euros and a negotiation with a view to updating the salaries of Public Administration workers, “taking as a basic proposal increases in line with inflation”.
In the State Budget proposal, the Government proposes that the minimum wage evolves to 760 euros in 2023 - with the objective of reaching 900 euros in 2026 - and that civil service workers have, at least, an increase of 52.11 euros per month in base salaries, while an appreciation of at least 2% is also guaranteed.

The amount of Portuguese fleeing for finding proper wages all over Europe is staggering. We will work with a team of guys from Lisbon who could easily work in Portugal, pay taxes and make sure benefits and health insurance can be secured over time. Now they work for double the salary here in the Netherlands, 1600 per month easily

@ Jaques: from 800 eur in Portugal to 1600 eur in The Netherlands? You see it as " double"? Basically they went from minimum wage in Portugal to minimum wage in the Netherlands? Not sure their buying power increased much, unless they are allowed to work remotely from Portugal?
