OREANDA-NEWS  Currently, it is difficult for graduates of higher educational institutions and institutions of secondary vocational education in Russia to get a job in their specialty. The problem is connected with the current distortion in the economy — institutes train specialists who cannot find themselves in the market, explained the head of the Ministry of Labor Anton Kotyakov, RIA Novosti reports.

The authorities are going to eliminate the bias by developing a labor market forecast for six years. The forecast will take into account the development of technologies and new professions, which will make it possible to form the necessary admission figures in universities and vocational schools and change the approach to forecasting the training of specialists and teaching staff, the minister estimated.

Another problem that worries the government and the Central Bank is the shortage of personnel. The shortage of specialists is associated not only with demographic characteristics, but also with the ongoing depreciation of vocational education. The salary of workers without education is comparable or higher than that of production employees, while the demand for self-employed, including couriers, is only growing.

The "salary revolution" will help to cope with the shortage of workers in Russia, Deputy Speaker of the State Duma Alexander Babakov is sure. It is necessary to carry out systematic measures in the country to sharply increase labor productivity, radically increase the stock of production facilities and, accordingly, a rapid increase in wages, he explained.
