Successful efforts to prevent unemployment spike in Belarus pointed out


An increase in the unemployment rate has been prevented in Belarus in such a complicated period of time. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko made the statement on the air of the Belarusian TV channel Belarus One, BelTA has learned.

Roman Golovchenko said: “The main task we had to accomplish in this period is to prevent a cascade loss of jobs, the closure of companies, prevent people from simply losing everything. About 60,000 people had to deal with part-time employment while about 50,000 people had to work fewer days per week. The process has been reversed since then. The situation is getting back to normal. Enterprises are getting back to normal while workers are getting back to working normal hours.”

In his words, attempts to fire workers for no good reason are high on the agenda. “The president always enquires about unjustified employment terminations, particularly in the private sector. I can confidently say that we've prevented those. The state labor inspectorate has inspected virtually 700 large and medium-sized companies and their observance of labor laws. The work continues. We are now monitoring about 200 privately owned small and medium enterprises. Rights of the workers have been violated only in a handful of cases. This is why the employment situation is absolutely manageable,” the prime minister noted.

Speaking about salaries, Roman Golovchenko stressed that the average salary in the country rose by 7.8% in H1 2020 while real disposable income of the population amounted to 105.4%. As for individual categories of workers (for instances, teachers in kindergartens), whose salaries are below Br1,000 for now, the prime minister stated that the head of state is looking closely into the matter. “I've told the head of state that we manage to keep public sector salaries at 80% of the country's average salary at least. By 2025 we should raise the ratio of salaries in two large public sector worker categories – healthcare workers and pedagogues – to 150% and 100% of the country's average salary respectively. We are on schedule so far,” Roman Golovchenko added.
