The government approved a plan to compensate employees for the increase in transportation costs on trains and buses. Employees whose income does not exceed 7,000 Sk and their travelling costs exceed 200 Sk per month will be eligible for compensation which is retroactive September 1. The money will come from the state Social Fund, to which each employer will allot 1.1-1.6 percent of total salaries (up from 0.6-1.1 percent). Also, eligible workers will get a monthly 500 Sk tax deduction (up from 300 Sk).
