An annual report of a survey among employers shows that workers are still confronted with pay cuts (1 in 10 employers), though the economy is recovering. Almost a quarter of the responding employers reduced the provisions and working conditions, and almost 50% have started with the item of demotion or the positioning of the regular workforce in lower paid jobs. Workers are confronted with a lowering of the applicable wage scale, with non-application of entitled pay increases or the cut back of the 13th month payment.
