Around 3,000 people demonstrated in Lausanne against what they considered to be too low cost-of-living compensation for state employees.

The march started around 6 p.m. from Place Saint-François and moved to Place du Château. On the way to the seat of the cantonal authorities, boos were heard, as a journalist from Keystone-SDA noted.

The protesters believe that the inflation adjustment of 1.4 percent from January 1, 2023 is insufficient given the higher inflation.
