When do pensioners get extra summer pay?: This remuneration will be paid with the June payroll, that is, at the end of this month, as a normal and current payroll. With which the payment will be made on July 1, although the exact day on which the payment will take place depends on each bank. The Ministry recalls that both contributory benefit pensioners and non-contributory they have a right to it. Although she remembers that those pensioners with permanent disability pension do not get it, since their pension is prorated in twelve installments, and not in fourteen, so the extra payments are already included.

The CPI triggers the costs of SMEs by 23% in one year and strangles the profitability of thousands of businesses: The sharp rise in costs, both labour and raw materials, has caught thousands of businesses without the capacity to absorb the increase in expenses, which has led many of them to reduce their profit margins in order to maintain activity in the midst of an inflationary upswing. Specifically, in the first quarter of 2022 these global costs have increased by 23%, while in the same period the recovery has allowed sales to rise by 19%, four points less, which puts even more pressure on the balance sheets of small and medium-sized companies in our country.

Oil tops $120 a barrel on Saudi pricing despite OPEC+ deal: Brent crude was up 4 cents to $119.76 a barrel at 12:22 p.m. EDT (1622 GMT) after touching an intraday high of $121.95.
-U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures rose 8 cents, or 0.1%, to $118.95 a barrel after hitting a three-month high of $120.99. The benchmark fell by $1 earlier in the session.
-Saudi Arabia raised the July official selling price (OSP) for its flagship Arab light crude to Asia by $2.10 from June to a $6.50 premium over Oman/Dubai quotes, just off an all-time-high recorded in May when prices hit highs due to worries of disruptions in supplies from Russia.
-The price increase followed a decision last week by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and allies, together called OPEC+, to boost output for July and August by 648,000 barrels per day, or 50% more than previously planned, though constraint in global refining capacity has kept prices elevated.

-In addition to ‘I’m Waiting for the Man’, Words & Music, May 1965 includes the earliest known recordings of ‘Heroin’ and ‘Pale Blue Eyes’.
