In the continuation of his statements, Erdogan said:
Unfortunately, the workers and employers could not agree on a common figure. We respectfully welcome the proposals and decisions of all parties. Both parties will adopt an attitude in line with their own interests. The most important thing for us is the emergence of the most accurate and sustainable figure for our country. We have approached the matter from this perspective and made a sincere effort to reach a reasonable compromise between the parties. We want Türk-İş to be among us. Since one of the parties did not participate, we could not leave the minimum wage in the middle. Since the parties could not reach an agreement, there were many minimum wage negotiations before. The minimum wage figure that we will explain is in line with the economic and social image of our country.
In the past weeks, we have resolved many issues such as the recruitment of public servants and contracted personnel.
In this way, we will determine the rate of increase in civil servants and pensions. We will continue to offer each and every one of our people the possibilities of a developing Turkey that is kneaded in the clutches of the scorpion. The minimum wage, which was 184 TL in 2002 in our country, increased 30 times and 142 percent in real terms in our period.
We earned 4253 TL by increasing the minimum wage by 50 percent. Not only that, we abolished the taxes on the minimum wage. The high increase in inflation during the year caused us to increase the minimum wage to 5500 liras with a new regulation. Let’s not forget that this state has a pancake.
