This proposal was submitted by MP Naglis Puteikis.

"I believe that this would be in line with a provision emerging in other European countries regarding the ratio of the minimum and average wages, which seeks social justice. It would limit economically-unjustified manipulations and would be a step towards a more responsible policy," the MP says.
