Over 15,000 of Romanian workers from all over the country protested low wages in the capital on Wednesday, rallying outside government headquarters.
The protest comes after over 800,000 of public sector workers staged a one-day strike on Monday to put pressure on the country’s government before a November presidential election.
Unions want a minimum monthly salary of 650 lei (â‚¬155, US$228) in 2010 and are demanding that the government scrap a measure forcing workers to take 10 unpaid vacation days this year.
