UĦM: Budget increases fall short

The Chief Executive of the UĦM, Josef Vella, said that the increases announced in the budget fell short and were not sufficient.

He explained that the Union had expected that the increases in the price of milk and bread would be calculated in the Cola in lieu of the measure where a one-person household would receive a check for € 15, while a family of two people or more would receive a cheque of € 35.

He also spoke about the increase of €7 in pensions for the elderly as well as reducing the tax on the income of pensioners.
