In Volovets, because of decentralization, public sector workers do not receive wages
Because of the fiscal decentralization, since the beginning of the year, Volovets district has been having troubles paying salaries to state employees.
In April, they owed 229,000 UAH worth of salaries to workers of kindergartens and cultural institutions. Overall, the local budgets provide for only six months worth of salaries to teachers and employees of cultural institutions.
In April and May, they managed to repay wage arrears in the district by redistribution of basic grants that the district receives from the state budget. It is currently unknown how they are going to solve the situation after the first half of the year.
