Cadres Decide Everything: The Pay and Pension Security of Workers in Science
Rimashevskaia, N. M.; Zubova, L. T.; Antropova, O. A.
Russian Education and Society, v53 n10 p61-79 Oct 2011
Russian science is experiencing processes of personnel aging and stagnation, which are disrupting the continuity of the generations and are limiting prospective workers' opportunities for professional and career growth. The decline in the prestige of science work, the exodus of specialists into other, more attractive segments of economic activity within Russia and elsewhere, and the deformation of the age structure of the cadre potential of science are all indicators that demonstrate the current state of the intellect in this country and, at the same time, the decline of its influence on the dynamics of economic development. This article suggests that reforms are urgently needed, including changes in the pension plans available to scientists in Russia. The fundamental approach consists of a comprehensive transformation of the overall system of retirement pensions. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
