Employment projects create 9,300 new jobs

SLOVAK Labour Minister Iveta Radičová has announced that the participation of 2,675 employers in the ministry's job creation support project will create 6,448 positions for long-term unemployed and disabled workers by next February. In return, the employers will be entitled to receive a state subsidy. A similar project took place in November 2005 and created 2,847 jobs.

The initiative, which has been running for six months so far, has thus created 9,295 jobs for the disadvantaged groups.
