Еще Tariceanu in prison uniforms. «There are several issues,» explained protester Oana Dobre. «Pay will not go up, it will go down for almost each employee in this country. The economy is becoming unpredictable, and this decree will bring it to absolute chaos.» According to the plans of the ruling coalition, social contributions that are currently paid directly by the employer will have to be covered by the employee, starting from January 1st next year which would reportedly result in a five percent to 25 percent reduction in salary.
