The increase of yesalario minimum by 2023 it will be from 16%, that is, the minimum wage will be 1,160,000 pesos. To this must be added 140,606 transportation assistance weights, so the final figure will be 1,300,606 pesos.
According to the Minister of Labor, Gloria Inés Ramírez, this is a historic decision because, for the first time, the inflation figure for families with less income was taken into account: “We have taken inflation of the poor as a basic figure, that is, we have started from 14.4. For what reason? Because it is there where there has been the most impact in the basic basket”.
Ramírez also assured that there will be other measures that seek to protect purchasing power, such as the deindexing of some goods, services and activities that are generally affected by the increase in the minimum wage.
“We are going to have a direct impact on the products that make up the basic basket“, said.
And while the elements whose price will be decoupled from the minimum are known, we will tell you what those are products and services that are generally impacted by the salary increase:
– The moderating fee of the EPS.
– Medical insurance.
– The pension contributions.
– ICA Services.
– The Soat.
– Intermunicipal bus fares.
– Some traffic fines.
– Benefits and rules of housing subsidies.
– Notary fees and property registration.
– Public services.
– Veterinary services.
