Supports measures to save jobs in Slovakia
Location: Slovakia, Bratislava
“Maintaining social peace should be the goal of every government”
COVID-19 severely impacted job security all across Europe, but people like Martina are working hard to support those most affected. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, her association has been highlighting the need for rapid action to help employers and entrepreneurs in difficulty, promoting and supporting those aiming to save jobs or reinforce companies. “Our common goal should be to maintain employment as much as possible,” she explains. “The threat of massive redundancies has never been so high and real. This is why we want social dialogue in Slovakia, which should be enabled at the national level.” Supporting employment is one of the objectives of the Next Generation EU recovery plan. It foresees EUR 31 billion in guarantees to provide European companies in the most affected sectors, regions, and countries with loans.
