Bulgaria -Wave of unemployment this fall -June 04, 2013

The labour and social policy minister announced that the country could be confronted with a wave of unemployment in fall, as the EU funded programs for temporary employment is going to terminate. The partakers in the programs will not be re-employed, because the funds in the national strategy for encouragement of employment will not suffice. The peak of the EU funded Human Resources Development program fell on 2012. 80,000 young Bulgarians found a job at that time. As of June 2013 the labour contract of the persons involved will be terminated, and they will have to register at the employment agencies again.
