The number of workers placed under reduced working hours increased for the third month in a row. At a meeting of the official committee that deals with the applications (the ‘comité de conjoncture’) 23 businesses were granted their request to cut working hours in a bid to save costs. The state will compensate employees for the lost wages. In total, the companies employ 4,260 people, with 1,850 affected by the partial unemployment measure in November. While in August the number of workers on reduced hours was just 844 – a usual seasonal development – this rose to 1,023 in September and 1,123 for October.
