Businesses have insisted on a freeze on the minimum wage next year and forecast a severe economic crisis in the coming months. The chairman of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce Radosvet Radev told BNR that the beginning of the crisis is yet to come.

The CITUB trade union does not agree to freeze the minimum wage in 2021, the leader of the trade union confederation Plamen Dimitrov commented for the BNR. The drop in the country's GDP is not applicable to all industries. Fortunately, the industry is going up. It is not in decline and is further evolving. From the point of view of jobs, people expect higher incomes, Dimitrov stressed.
