The unemployment rate in Bulgaria is 7.9% instead of 14% thanks to the 60/40 measure. This was stated by the Minister of Social Affairs Denitsa Sacheva in an interview for the Bulgarian National Television.
„We would call it a success if the unemployed people do not exceed 300 000 until the end of the year”, continued Sacheva.
She was perplexed by the critics against the Social Ministry for handling the pandemic. From the Minister’s point of view the measures aim at supporting the employers who intend to keep their employees at work in such hard times.
Minister Sacheva pointed out that 20% of the workers in the Tourism sector succeeded in finding a job for the summer season 2020. The experts expect that the unemployment rate in restaurants, hotels and tourism sector rises in October and November. This is why syndicates and employers work together to prolong the measure.
