In addition representatives of Russian Ministry of Labor think that situation will not be changed in the nearest future. The possibility of salary increase is expected not earlier than in 3 years. The majority of experts say that rate and real wage will start increasing only in 2018.

In spite of such difficulties the situation on the labor market is absolutely normal. Even if consider the fact that there are fewer vacancies for candidates in comparison with the previous year, the situation is stable.
