National Assembly Member Nguyen Thi Viet Nga (Hai Duong Delegation):

The new salary will meet life needs


It can be said that the content of salary reform received great attention from National Assembly delegates, a large number of voters and the people on the agenda of the sixth session of the 15th National Assembly. In particular, for the cadres, civil servants and public employees who receive salaries from the state budget, this is a matter of great expectation. Because, according to the current salary calculation method, the salaries of these subjects are very low, out of date compared to the price level and life needs in general.

The team of officials, civil servants, and public employees all hope that, with this recognition, the new salary will meet life’s needs. Among them, we must mention the medical forces, doctors, teachers, and people working in the health and education sectors. For specific industries such as Education and Health, in addition to salary, it is necessary to pay attention to job-specific allowances and it is important that these allowances have the effect of improving the income of people in the industry. , not only has the effect of motivating the spirit.

Senior expert of the Ministry of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs Bui Sy Loi:

Re-assign labor appropriately


I think that currently the salaries of officials, civil servants and public employees are still not enough to cover life’s needs, so it is very difficult to create a team of professional, diligent and effective civil servants and public employees. The reform of salary policy will ensure the lives of officials, civil servants and public employees, and meet the increase in the cost of living in the market; At the same time, ensure adequate salaries, reflecting the true value of the labor of officials, civil servants and public employees.

Besides, it is necessary to continue to reorganize the organization to be lean and effective; innovate the organization and management system, improve the quality and operational efficiency of public service units. We must clearly realize that streamlining payroll is a prerequisite for wage policy reform; It is necessary to create a list of job positions, ensuring a reasonable reassignment of labor, contributing to increasing labor productivity and creating social growth for national development. In addition, it is necessary to transform public service units towards autonomy and self-responsibility.

Civil servant of Office – Statistics, People’s Committee of Quan Thanh ward (Ba Dinh district, Hanoi) Nguyen Thi Bao Yen:

Create equality in income


The National Assembly’s adoption of a comprehensive reform of salary policy from July 1, 2024 is what civil servants and public employees like us most hope for. It can be seen that the negative effects among a section of cadres, civil servants and public employees may be due to the fact that their income does not ensure their living standards.

Salary reform aims to ensure fair wages, bonus levels, and work assignment regimes. From there, establish fairness in the income of workers in the same group. This will create peace of mind for current officials and civil servants. At the same time, the state apparatus can promote streamlining payrolls and promoting individual capabilities, thereby ensuring job positions. The upcoming salary reform will also ensure that public sector salaries gradually approach and do not differ from corporate sector salaries so that the state sector can attract high-quality human resources with a good salary regime. satisfactory salary.
