Sixty percent against limiting work done on a trade license

A recent survey reported that almost sixty percent of the adult population in Slovakia does not support changes to the Labour Code that would limit work done on a trade license.

GfK Slovakia conducted the survey at the request of the National Union of Employers between March 22 and 28.

The sample group was made up of people aged 18 and older.

One-third of respondents support limiting work that can be done on a trade license.

GfK Slovakia reported that the change encountered the biggest resistance among trade license holders. Only 20 percent of trade license holders supported the changes while 78 percent were against them.
