In January 2020, the average salary in Moscow amounted to 88.9 thousand rubles. This was announced on April 25 at the Moscow Statistics Committee, RT reports.
Such an amount is 12.1 percent more than for the same period in 2019 (last January, in Moscow, the average salary was 79.7 thousand rubles). Changes in salaries for the category of top managers usually go at a faster pace than the average salaries for other categories of workers. A professor at the Financial University, Alexander Safonov, thinks that the increase was due to the indexation of salaries in the public sector, and large companies played a big role in this.
