So what about the fate of private employees with wages below Rp 5 million who do not get the BLT?

Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said that the distribution of assistance to private employees who are not participants of BPJamsostek is a challenge for the government.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Finance ensures that assistance will also be provided to workers with salaries under IDR 5 million who are not registered as participants of the BPJS Ketenagakerjaan program.

“More or less, as we have heard, the amount for workers, who will move around Rp. 2.4 million per person. Will they be paid once or how many times are we finalizing the payment,” he said.

Minimum wage rises in more than 20 states and cities in the US – Telemundo San Antonio (60)

MIAMI – The minimum wage rose between Tuesday and the first day of the year in 21 states and 26 cities and counties in the United States, according to figures compiled by the National Employment Law Project (NELP).

The first employees to benefit from this increase were those who work in New York City, who as of Tuesday must receive a payment of at least $ 15 dollars per hour, while in the rest of the state it is $ 11.80 per hour.

New York is one of 17 jurisdictions where the minimum wage has risen to as high as $ 15 an hour that unions and organizations like NELP have been asking for for years.

But the increase is not limited to this start of the year, as throughout 2020 another 4 states and 23 cities and counties will reach the desired figure of $ 15 an hour.

In total, 24 states and 48 cities and counties will increase their minimum wages sometime in 2020.

In Illinois and Saint Paul, in the state of Minneapolis, they will increase the minimum wage twice this year, on January 1 and in July, the NELP noted.

In addition to Illinois, states that already have new minimum wages include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey and Washington.

The increase in the minimum wage will benefit about 6.8 million employees, according to figures from the Institute for Economic Policy.

Those who will see no change in their pay are employees under the federal minimum wage, which has stood at $ 7.25 an hour since it last rose to that figure more than a decade ago.

On July 24, 2009, the US federal minimum wage had its last hike and despite various attempts to increase this figure, workers will have to wait until they see the results of next November’s elections to try to achieve an increase.

One of those efforts was the House of Representatives’ approval in 2019 of the “Raise the Wage Act” project, which would have allowed the current federal minimum wage to rise to $ 15 an hour in stages, in addition to other protections.

But the hopes of workers in about fifteen states currently living on the federal minimum wage were dashed in the words of Senate leader Republican Mitch McConnell, saying the upper house was not going to vote on the bill.

Added to this was the White House notice that he would veto the measure if he reached his desk.

The staff of special centers will receive the full salary even if they are in ERTE

The special employment centers, which in the Basque Country employ more than 9,000 people with some functional diversity, and job placement companies, which host another 1,400, go through particularly difficult times. Much of these templates are dedicated to manufacturing components for other companies that, especially during the fortnight of economic hibernation, which only allowed them to maintain essential activities, lowered the blind and left them almost without orders.

So many were forced to resort to temporary employment regulation records. The ERTEs. And more than 4,000 employees have been affected, so many, whose salary barely exceeds the interprofessional minimum wage (950 euros per month), should only receive 70% paid by Lanbide. However, they will charge 100%, as announced by the Lehendakari, Íñigo Urkullu, during the visit he made in Sestao to the facilities of Lantegi Batuak, an entity that has ‘recycled’ 70 workers in four of its centers and has put them in make masks. They already produce 10,000 a week.

Urkullu acknowledged that the Basque Government must reinforce its commitment to maintain employment conditions “for people with disabilities”. Apply a “positive discrimination” that, in this case, will be achieved by maintaining the aid that is already given to these employees, even though during the ERTEs their contracts, in some way, decline.

“They will have difficulties”

“In the case of special employment centers they are 475 euros per month per person, and in the case of insertion companies, 12,300 per year,” explained the Deputy Minister of Employment and Social Policies, Marcos Muro, who accompanied the visit to the lehendakari and the head of her department, Beatriz Artolazabal. With this money, “we hope to cover the amounts that these people have stopped receiving and thus, in practice, consolidate their full salary until they can return to their jobs.”

The managing director of Lantegi Batuak, Txema Franco, highlighted his concern for the future of job centers and insertion companies, which bring together people with problems to enter the labor market, and who provide them with the self-esteem and necessary tools. “We know how much it has cost us to achieve the labor inclusion quotas that we have today, and we are very aware of the difficulties of access to the labor market that people with disabilities will have in the future,” he warned.

At least, he acknowledged, fifty hundred workers have seen their jobs reinforced, “since they work in the cleaning and laundry of residences and hospitals and even make home delivery for the elderly.” On the other hand, 807 employees have had to cause compulsory leave, mainly because they are people at risk of contagion.

Girona and the workforce reach an agreement for a reduction in pay

Aday Benitez said, three weeks ago, at the beginning of total confinement, that the staff had strongly assumed that Girona could use a temporary employment regulation file (ERTO) to try to better support the situation caused by the pandemic. of the coronavirus. Sentmenat, one of the team captains, said that “you have to come up with the idea and be prepared because it looks like it’s going to happen”. During these days, since the alarm was decreed, Girona has always been in contact with the staff as well as with the rest of the club’s employees. There were all the options on the table, also, of course, the one of the ERTO, in order to find a formula that would allow the club to alleviate the loss of revenue due to the stoppage of the competition and all activities. However, the solution has come in the form of an agreement to reduce salaries. After a few days of talks, last night, Girona announced the final agreement with the template for “a voluntary reduction of salaries”.

In this way, players, coaching staff and management have agreed to reduce their salaries by 15% in case the competition cannot be resumed and terminated. This cut would be reduced if the league resumed behind closed doors and would be 3%. In a statement, Girona described the staff’s position as a “gesture of responsibility and commitment” to accept this situation, and thanked them for “their understanding and collaboration” at all times. In the same way, Girona has also proposed a voluntary reduction of 3% of the annual salary to the rest of the club’s employees.

With the economic agreement with the squad and the coaching staff, Girona is now awaiting the end of the season. At the moment, it seems that La Liga intends to finish it on the pitch, probably behind closed doors. The entity that presides over Javier Tebas has already sent a manual to all the clubs with the protocol that should be followed when it is time to return to training and resume the competition.

However, everything will depend on the approval of the health care authorities. For its part, the Federation has already made it clear that Second B down is its position to end the season without relegation and only to do a few play-offs express to decide the promotion.

Girona, meanwhile, continues to work on social projects, detailing that, “through this sacrifice”, it will double the financial contribution to the fundraising campaign for Doctor Josep Trueta University Hospital.

The NBA will retain 25% of the salary to its players from May 15

The NBA and the players union (NBPA) agreed this Friday that the league will retain 25% of the biweekly salary of each player from May 15 to face the economic losses derived from the possible cancellation of the remainder of the season, suspended from mid-March because of the coronavirus. In a brief joint statement, employers and basketball players reported that they have agreed “the method to reduce the compensation of the players in the event of a permanent cancellation of matches of the 2019-20 regular season or even the playoffs due to the Covid pandemic- 19 ».

NBA players, who receive their professional emoluments divided into fortnights, will begin to have withholdings of a quarter of their salary in each subscription from the middle of next month. However, the part of the salary corresponding to May 1 will be received in its entirety, as has been the case up to now.

In any case, and given the advance of the pandemic in the United States – which according to Johns Hopkins University already has practically 685,000 infected and nearly 35,000 deaths from this disease – the NBA has not yet been able to determine if the games can be resumed this season, suspended since March 12. Nor has it been possible to resolve whether, in a kind of plan B, it would be necessary to cancel some matches to adjust the calendar and end the campaign, even if it was already during the month of July.

The money withheld from the players will remain as a security deposit and would be returned to them in full in the very unlikely event that all remaining matches of the season can be played. In the opposite scenario, the teams will keep a percentage of those sums based on the number of games that have to be annulled, a decision that the NBA will not take until at least May, according to its commissioner, Adam Silver.

Likewise, if these cancellations were reached, a force majeure clause would be put in place, included in the collective agreement with the players, according to which wages could be reduced by up to 1% for each game canceled. And it is that the forced stoppage of activities due to a pandemic is considered an event of force majeure as established in the labor agreement.

Wait two more months

According to ESPN journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, who shortly before had advanced the terms of the agreement, the union has informed players of the possibility that until June 15 – that is, in almost two more months – it is not confirmed whether there will finally be cancellations of matches. Each of the 30 NBA teams lacks an average of 15 to 19 matches to complete the 82 that make up the regular season for each.

The NBA is now studying a large number of scenarios to resume competition. They range from playing games without an audience, either in the same stadiums or on training grounds, to the possibility of concentrating franchises in the same city to play the playoffs there.

Regarding the negotiations between the NBA and the players union, they have lasted several weeks. The digital media The Athletic published that the club’s employers ‘association proposed a 50% reduction in wages as of April 15, but the basketball players’ social representatives said they would only accept a decrease of 25% and from 15 May, that is, in line with what was finally agreed.

Salary cuts to avoid further economic damage

With football paralyzed for more than a month and with no prospect of resuming any time soon, more than half of the league’s clubs have already reached agreements with their players to lower their salaries and avoid further economic damage. Not only the personalities of footballers, coaches and executives, who assume that in such a severe loss moment and with a future of so much uncertainty, it is necessary to reduce their salaries, but also for the rest of the employees of clubs or corporations, than with the Agreements reached will not see their wages reduced in most cases.

To alleviate the crisis that is shaking an industry that represents 1.37% of the country’s GDP, the clubs of the highest category in Spanish football are carrying out two measures. The ERTE, applied, according to the order of the First classification, by Barcelona, ​​Seville, Atlético de Madrid, Alavés and Espanyol; and the agreements, in order to avoid temporary employment regulation files, which have already been reached by Real Madrid, Real Sociedad, Athletic, Osasuna, Betis, Levante, Valladolid and Celta.

The footballers’ salary reduction would reach 20% in the event that the competition could not be resumed for Real Madrid (if football returns it would be 10%), Real Sociedad, Osasuna and Levante, although the Navarrese club has announced that “the salaries of all the club’s workers will be maintained during the months of March, April and May, the most complicated of the health crisis”, and “if the season can end, the workers will receive one hundred percent of their wages normally”. For Athletic and Valladolid, if the championship were to be permanently suspended, the drop in chips would be 17%, and for Betis, 15%. «It is difficult to talk about money when there is a serious health problem, but the economic scenario is difficult for Betis if the League is not resumed. We have put the club, its fans and its workers above all, because doing an ERTE would have brought a lot of instability, “admitted the president of the Verdiblanco club, Ángel Haro, who when he announced the agreement thanked the” generosity “of the players and the coaching staff.

If the remainder of the competition could be concluded behind closed doors, as LaLiga wishes, Levante would reduce its salary by 3%, according to an agreement “that” avoids taking drastic labor measures for the rest of the workers in the club »which also includes the president, Quico Catalán, At double the salary, 6%, the Athletic footballers would then resign, with matches without an audience, who joined the list on Wednesday; and 5% those of the Real Sociedad.

Just two weeks ago, LaLiga urged, “given that the conversations with the Association of Spanish Soccer Players (AFE) are very distant -and thus still remain-“, he urged the First and Second clubs «to initiate ERTE to reduce working hours due to force majeure authorized by the Government as an exceptional mechanism to avoid and alleviate the negative impact that the Covid-19 is having on the sector ». Since then, after Alavés, Espanyol, Barça and Atlético were ahead of that measure required by the employers, Sevilla has been the only one that has presented an ERTE that can reach, and actually reaches in clubs, up to 70% of the reduction in working hours and, therefore, in wages. “The position of AFE, by responsibility, is the application of the reduction of working hours, if the ERTE is justified, and to avoid that all the economic impact falls on the public purse”, insists the syndidate of players.
