    MOSCOW, February 3 (RIA Novosti) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has come out for tough measures with regard to those enterprise managers who are responsible for wage arrears. The President raised this question at the meeting with Minister of Labor Alexander Pochinok on Tuesday.

    Putin said that "the entire complex of the legislation," including the Code of Labor Laws, should work against such managers. This document, underscored the President, contains "sufficiently tough measures," and they must be efficiently applied.

    As the Labor Minister explained to the President, the wages are delayed mostly by "bankrupt one-day enterprises." The minister had in mind the enterprises which have long stopped their activity but continue to remain registered. There are about 300,000 such enterprises in the country at the present time, said the minister.

    He proposed to forcibly close them, and to pay wages from their still remaining property.

    Pochinok named the town of Novoshakhtinsk in the south of the country, where the coal mines are being closed, among the most problematic towns from the point of view of wage arrears.
