Thus, according to the head of the government, as of November 29, 2019, in comparison with May 2018, 81,000 534 jobs were identified (created or removed from the shadows) in Armenia. As of October 29 this year the indicator was 74 969. "Thus, over a month in Armenia 6 thousand 565 jobs were identified (created or removed from the shadow)," Pashinyan wrote.
At the same time, the prime minister pays attention to the distribution of the scale income tax of 74 969 working citizens in October and 81 534 in November this year In particular, the distribution of salaries between 74 thousand 969 October jobs were as follows: 30.4% or 22 thousand 810 people received salaries of up to 150 thousand drams, 68.9% or 51,723 employees earned from 150 thousand to 2 million drams, and monthly income of 0.5% or 423 people amounted to more than 2 million drams.
In November, the picture was as follows: of the 81,534 new jobs, 28.5% or 23 250 people earned up to 150 thousand drams, 70.8% or 57 736 citizens - from 150 thousand drams to 2 million drams, and the salary 0.6 % or 548 employees amounted to over 2 million drams.
"As you can see, the share of high-paying jobs among newly created jobs is gradually increasing, which indicates a deep and positive transformation of the economy. I have no doubt that a significant part of the jobs in this segment are in the IT sector," Pashinyan emphasized.
At the same time, the Prime Minister said in a postscript: "I would like to emphasize that new jobs have a certain seasonal factor. For example, in September compared to August, they decreased by about 3000. But this does not affect the overall dynamics that we expect with May 2018, that is, since the victory of the revolution (velvet revolution in the Republic of Armenia - Ed.). As you can see, a huge number of new jobs have appeared in Armenia, and this process will continue, "Nikol Pashinyan noted.
