Despite the far-reaching impact of the current economic crisis, almost 30 percent of Slovaks feel that their employers have not been affected, according to a public opinion survey carried out by the Agency for Marketing, Market Research, Advertising and Media Research (AKO) and released in Bratislava.

In the survey, quoted by the TASR newswire, which featured a sample of 1,207 respondents in January, only 12 percent said that their employers had to take extensive measures, 6 percent described the measures as drastic and 10 percent feel the economic crisis has had no influence on their employers. More than half of the respondents said that their working situation or their duties hadn't changed. However, some 5 percent had had their working hours cut and some 3.6 percent were working for a lower salary. Among the respondents, 1.8 percent had lost their jobs while the firm stayed in business, and 0.5 percent lost jobs because the company had had to close down. TASR
