Tomanová: Thousands of jobs currently under threat

Some 3,550 jobs in Slovakia are currently under the threat of redundancies and another 1,700 may join them by the end of the year, Labour Minister Viera Tomanová said after meeting on October 30.

Prime Minister Robert Fico said that Slovakia currently has about 19,600 vacancies. Most of them, 3,000, are in the Trenčín region; the least, 900, are in the Košice region.

In many regions, however, the problem consists of an incongruity between the demand and supply of work, said Ján Sihelský, general director of the Centre for Labour, Social Affairs and the Family.

"The structure of vacancies unfortunately doesn't correspond with the unemployed workforce registered at job centres," he explained. TASR
