I will raise minimum wage says Opposition leader Simon Busuttil

Opposition leader Simon Busuttil says he will raise the minimum wage by 3.5% each year for three years if he is elected to power.

He was speaking on the TVM programme Dissett where he compared the minimum wage in Malta with that of Germany which is double that of Malta saying that with a strong economy increases should be made now.

Simon Busuttil also criticised the government on it’s energy programme saying that Malta did not really need a gas powered energy station. The Malta- Sicily interconnector would provide enough energy for the islands needs.
