Komentar dr. Anje Kopač Mrak: Minimalna plača mora zagotavljati dostojen standard življenja za delavca in njegovo družino

Trenutna razprava o uskladitvi minimalne plače za mesec januar 2018 je vse prej kot samo to. Je razprava o vredno(s)ti dela v Sloveniji, o zmanjševanju neenakosti in spodbujanju socialne pravičnosti ter ideji socialne demokracije, da si bodo ljudje z delom zaslužili toliko, da bodo dostojno živeli.

Kot ministrica za delo, družino, socialne zadeve in enake možnosti imam možnost, da predlagam višino minimalne plače, pri čemer je potrebno upoštevati rast cen življenjskih potrebščin oz. inflacijo, gibanje plač, gospodarske razmere oz. rast ter gibanje zaposlenosti. Znesek je potrebno vsaj enkrat letno uskladiti najmanj z rastjo cen življenjskih potrebščin. Z mojim predlogom 4,7-odstotnega zvišanja minimalne plače, želimo delavcem in delavkam zagotoviti skoraj 25 evrov na mesec več. Tako bi bruto mesečna plača znašala 842,79 evra oziroma 638,42 evra neto. Slovenija se ponovno krepi, zato je pomembno, da se krepijo tudi njeni ljudje.

Pomen minimalne plače ne moremo zreducirati samo na njeno preživetveno funkcijo. Zagotavljati mora dostojen standard življenja za delavca in njegovo družino.

Minimalna plača ni le socialni korektiv, je eden izmed ključnih elementov zmanjševanja socialnih razlik pri kateremu nimamo niti negativnih vplivov na javno porabo, kot pri večini drugih ukrepov. Še posebej pomemben rezultat se je pokazal pri dvigu minimalne plače leta 2010, ko smo Socialni demokrati dosegli skoraj 23% dvig minimalne plače, ki je imel viden vpliv na zmanjšanje neenakosti predvsem pri manj izobraženih ženskah in mladih.

Minimalna plača ima tudi motivacijsko funkcijo. Ob upoštevanju minimalnih življenjskih stroškov, praga tveganja revščine in učinku socialnih transferjev je ključna ugotovitev, da v Sloveniji na motiviranost posameznikov za delo vplivata predvsem višina plač ter sploščenost plačne lestvice.

Slovenija je izšla iz obdobja krize in velike brezposelnosti v pozitivno rast in situacijo na trgu dela, kjer primanjkuje ustrezne delovne sile. Prav zato je tudi za nadaljnjo gospodarsko rast ključno, da motiviramo in opolnomočimo prejemnike nadomestila za brezposelnost in socialnih transferjev, da aktivno prispevajo v naši družbi.

Minimalna plača je tako ekonomsko kot politično upravičena. Predvsem v smislu redistribucije strukturne moči med delom in kapitalom. Neto čisti dobiček gospodarskih družb v letu 2016 je znašal slabih 3,2 milijarde evrov. Ob letnem obsegu gospodarskih družb za plače v višini 8,5 milijarde evrov, predstavlja povišanje teh sredstev za prejemnike minimalne plače v privatnem sektorju 18 milijonov evrov oziroma 0,21%.

Verjamem, da je gospodarstvo zmožno prenesti takšen dvig minimalne plače, saj je gospodarska rast v Sloveniji pozitivna in stabilna, prav takšno napovedujejo tudi za naslednji dve leti. Zvišuje se zaposlenost in s tem tudi uspešno poslovanje gospodarskih družb.

Na minimalno plačo ne smemo gledati le z vidika stroškov in povečevanja konkurenčnosti. Pri tem pa ni nepomembno izpostaviti, da bi povišanje minimalne plače za 4,7% pomenilo, da se stroški delodajalcev povišajo le za 3%, zaradi določene najnižje osnove za plačilo prispevkov, ki v letu 2018 znaša 54% povprečne plače.

Če plače zaostajajo za rastjo produktivnosti, je posledica prerazporeditev ustvarjenega v korist kapitala in se ne preliva do delavcev in v korist zasebne porabe. V zadnjih petih letih od leta 2013 je skupna rast minimalne plače znašala 2,5%, medtem ko je bila realna rast povprečne bruto plače 3,2%. Produktivnost dela je narasla za 5,9%, BDP pa za kar 11,2%. Minimalna plača ostaja osnova za izgradnjo plačne politike, saj ustvarja tudi pritisk za prestrukturiranje gospodarstva in s tem sili v povišanje povprečne plače. Tu moramo za dvig kakovosti življenja predvsem srednjega razreda narediti še več.

Ne smemo pozabiti kaj smo Socialni demokrati že dosegli s spremembami minimalne plače. Naša prva socialdemokratska vlada je leta 2010 minimalno plačo zvišala iz takratnih 549,43 evrov na 734,15 evrov bruto, kar je bil daleč najvišji dvig v EU. In to v času krize in negativne gospodarske rasti. Naša prizadevanja za zagotavljanje dostojnega življenja za delavke in delavce ostajajo v srcu naših politik.

Žal je znesek minimalne plače vprašanje pri katerem delodajalci, delojemalci in vlada nismo še nikoli dosegli soglasja. Zaradi tega je pred dvema letoma propadel celo socialni sporazum, kar obžalujem še danes. Vendar še vedno verjamem v konstruktiven socialni dialog.

Pritiski na minimalno plačo so visoki predvsem v tistih državah, kjer celoten plačni model ne deluje dobro in bipartitni dialog predvsem na panožni ravni šibi. Zato me veseli, da je tako pri sindikatih kot pri delodajalcih zaznati željo po vzpostavitvi novega dialoga glede plačnega modela v Sloveniji. Okoli tega moramo graditi splošen družben konsenz.

Za Slovenijo, kjer bo delo temeljna vrednota, ki bo omogočala preživetje družbe in posameznika v njej, posamezniku pa dajala dostojanstvo in možnost, da po svojih najboljših močeh ustvarja skupnost.
