In the 2nd of March 2014 edition of Público newspaper, Paulo Trigo Pereira writes and article entitled “Portugal is not a blank slate” in his column “Active citizenship”.
The President of the Board of IPP defends that the budget presented by the Government for 2013-2017 entails a practical freezing of public salaries, which may contribute to the weakening of the State, in addition to the “inequity inherent to austerity for two particular groups of people (pensioners and public servants)”.
The article is available in no site do Público, and shortly here on IPP’s website.
