The President will send to the Assembly the bill for labor protection and promotion.
This proposal, expected for this week and that will have an economic-urgent nature, will include several topics: unemployment insurance, employment incentives to young people aged 18 to 25 years, adjustments to working hours and special mechanisms for construction, fishing and agriculture sectors, told to Expreso the member of the Commission on Legislative Administration (CAL), Fausto Cayambe.
According to him, unemployment insurance will be supported by the state, the employer and the employee. In some countries, this is applied in percentages ranging from 28% of the base salary to 70%, as in Sweden, for example. “It is feasible and necessary. It is not flexibilization or precariousness of work. The effect of the insurance is that these revenues will invigorate the economy, the worker will be able to pay for services and buy,” he said.
