Decent Wages Tour - launch

Il-pubbliku huwa mistieden jingħaqad mal-Kampanja Paga Minima Diċenti fit-tnedija tad-Decent Wages Tour. Fix-xhur li ġejjin se nkunu qegħdin inżuru diversi lokalitajiet u postijiet tax-xogħol madwar Malta sabiex nispjegaw u niddiskutu l-proposta tagħna għal żieda fil-paga minima. Is-Sibt 11 ta’ Marzu se nibdew dan it-tour mill-Belt Valletta, quddiem il-Parlament, fejn se tiġi indirizzata wkoll konferenza stampa.


Il-Kampanja Paga Minima Dicenti temmen li l-ħaddiema għandhom dritt jirċievu paga xierqa għax-xogħol li jagħmlu, li mhuwiex il-każ bħalissa. Għalhekk żieda fil-paga minima tfisser iktar ġustizzja mal-ħaddiema, u mhux biss ma’ dawk fuq paga minima. Dan għaliex din iż-żieda toħloq pressjoni sabiex pagi baxxa oħra jogħlew bl-istess ammont, u b’hekk iktar ħaddiema jkollhom paga diċenti. 

------------------------------------------------

The public is invited to join the Campaign for a Decent Minimum Wage at its launch of the Decent Wages Tour. In the coming months we will be visiting several localities and workplaces around Malta to explain and discuss our proposal for an increase in the minimum wage. On Sat 11th March we will initiate this tour from Valletta, in front of Parliament, where a press conference will also be addressed. 


The Campaign for a Decent Minimum Wage believes that workers are entitled to receive decent wages for their work, which is currently not the case. Thus, a raise in the minimum wage is about more justice to workers, and not solely workers on a minimum wage. Such an increase will create pressure for a raise in other low wages, meaning that more workers will start receiving a decent wage. 

--------------------------------------------------

Several organisations and individuals are involved in the Campaign for a Decent Minimum Wage. The organisations participating in the Campaign are: Aditus Foundation, Alleanza Kontra l-Faqar, Caritas, Forum Bormliż, Integra Foundation, Koperattiva Kummerċ Ġust, Malta Humanist Association, Malta Microfinance, Mid-Dlam għad-Dawl, Millennium Chapel, Moviment Graffitti, Paulo Freire Institute, Peace Lab, The Critical Institute, Third World Group and Żminijietna - Voice of the Left
