State to give Sk300 million to support employment

THE STATE will distribute Sk300 million (€7.6 million) by the end of this year to employers, municipalities, and NGOs to encourage the creation of jobs.

Labour Minister Iveta Radičová said the money should help create jobs for the unemployed and other disadvantaged groups such as handicapped people. Employers and municipalities, however, say that the sum is too low, the Pravda daily reported.

The state will contribute Sk58,000 (€1,480) for the employment of people registered at labour offices and in the case of disadvantaged unemployed, the contribution should reach Sk80,000 (€2,043).

Jobs for handicapped persons should be supported by as much as Sk220,000 (€5,620).
