Snowdrifts are growing, but the number of janitors is not: they are most lacking in the Basmanny district

More than 200 workers are required there. Teply Stan is in second place in terms of the shortage of janitors (60 vacancies), and Yasenevo, Obruchevsky district and Khoroshevo-Mnevniki are in third place (50 vacancies each).

In total, there are more than 1.6 thousand such vacancies in the capital, write Izvestia with reference to the Moscow Employment Center. And over the past week, their number has increased by 10%.

The reason for this dynamic is partly in the employers themselves. They began to prefer Russians to migrants who traditionally do this work, says Yury Moskovsky, chairman of the commission of the council for nationalities under the Moscow government.

But they are not in a hurry to work as janitors. Including because of the low salary – on average, janitors are paid 25-30 thousand rubles, less often – up to 50 thousand. In winter, the janitors should raise their salaries, Moskovsky believes, then there would be more incentive to work, especially in emergency mode, as during recent abnormal snowfalls.

Over the past three years, Moscow has lost some of its labor migrants for various reasons, while at the same time, there is more turnover among those newcomers who continue to work here.

“People are looking for jobs that pay more and have fewer responsibilities. For example, a migrant first gets a job as a janitor, and then he buys a bicycle and becomes a courier,” Moskovsky explained.

He also drew attention to the fact that more and more residents of Central Asia are oriented towards work in China. The wages of the average industrial worker there are higher than in our country. In addition, migrants do not want to work in Russia because of strict legislation. A couple of administrative women – and they face expulsion and a three-year ban on entry.
