Gov't focused on hiring, workers - it gets harder

BELGRADE - Serbia celebrated the International Workers' Day on Wednesday, with gatherings at which people pointed to the increasingly difficult position of workers, while the government pointed out that creating new jobs and improving the workers' financial position are its priorities.

  Representatives of several trade unions said at a rally at Nikola Pasic Square in Belgrade that workers have fewer rights, adding that the position of employed people should be improved. President of the Association of Independent Trade Unions Ljubisav Orbovic told journalists ahead of the meeting that the destruction of Serbian economy lead to job losses and fewer rights for workers. "Apathy of the citizens is the biggest problem. 

This protest rally aims at breaking the apathy and raising the morale of workers," Orbovic said, adding that the situation will not change until workers take to the streets. He announced that trade unions will very soon deliver their requests to the government, which, as he put it, was given enough time to improve the position of workers. Photo Tanjug, S. Radovanovic
