83.4% of Portuguese workers for others receive up to 1,500 euros per month. Average salary is 1093
The Minister of Finance will today Parliament to bring its state budget proposal for 2016, in which “a person who has a gross income of 2000 euros per month is a distribution position of those who pay taxes in Portugal highly privileged. ” This phrase Mário Centeno, said in an interview with yesterday DN entronca the harsh reality of a country that lives very low wages too low
It is the country of a thousand euros:. In 2014, the remuneration average was 1093.21 euros (value representing a slight decrease compared to 2013), according to Personnel Boards, a publication of the Office of Strategy and Planning of the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security on workers for others .
the data described herein frightened by the reality that destapam: in 2013, of the nearly two million (more exactly: 1,890,511 workers) of “workers for others full time, who have received compensation full “, 83.4% had a monthly remuneration (including all that is earned, such as overtime) to 1499.99 euros. And the highest percentage is from 600 to 749.99 euros (23.7% of employees).
Decomposing those with salaries above 1500 euros, it appears that 10.7% earned between 1500 and 2499.99 euros (including those that characterized Centeno), 3.9% earned in 2500 and 3749.99 euros, 1.1% from 3750 to 4999.99 euros, 0.9% above 5000 euros.
in reading by decile, it turns out that the 10% with higher earnings had an average of 3225 euros, the double of what is included in the 9th decile (the second highest): 1607 euros. The median is 785 Euros. That is, half of the workers on behalf of others gained under this gross pay.
These data reflect only they receive workers on behalf of others, not including civil servants, self-employed, unemployed or retired. The indicators tell us that the workers of public administration gain, in general, more than the private sector, which is linked to their higher qualifications. But workers on individual name and pensioners also earn on average less than for others. Not forgetting the equation more than 600 thousand unemployed.

Noting that “the tax burden on labor income is excessive,” communist MP Paulo Sá explained to the DN that the PCP wants to insist “on increasing the number of IRS levels and a significant decrease of the lower and intermediate rates, reinforcing the highest income.”
“During this year is no intention to discuss with the government changes to the IRS, “anticipated Paulo Sá, recalling that” the surcharge is only one component of the brutal tax increases, “the previous executive and to retrieve the news that, according to a former head of the Authority tax, “the very rich taxpayers, the richest of the rich do not pay because the IRS.” “And I’m not talking about 2000 euros salary,” he noted.
For its part, the deputy BE Jose Gusmao stressed the agreement with the PS that “provides for the total elimination of the surcharge in 2017″ and that “will have implications for the income of 2,000 euros.” “There is much to do from the point of view of tax relief,” he noted.
Like the Communists, the bloquista bench also wants “a return to the level of IRS progressive before the brutal increase of the right of taxes” as explained Jose Guzman, referring to the scrambled the levels decided by the executive Passos Coelho in 2012, effective in 2013.
But the ENP set with PS also in agreement that enables the socialist governance one working group on fiscal policy.
