Reader feedback: Too early to ask

Re: Only 36 percent content with jobs, Flash news, June 27, 2005

To give one comparison, 90 percent of Hollanders are content with their jobs, although 50 percent find the workload too high. Slovakia has achieved reduction in unemployment at the EU average. Whether people like their jobs or not, that is good going.

Here in Radošovce (Trnava district) is a company, in an old shed near the centre, which produces metal profiles. The company has been working almost day and night, and found a Belgian partner. On the outskirts of Radošovce a brand new factory with offices has been built, and shortly the company will move there.

I am sure that the working conditions will be much better in the new premises. Perhaps it is a little too early to ask people about job satisfaction in Slovakia.
