Pension reform in Slovenia not enough

Slovenia's new pension reform came into effect on January 1st, and negotiations on a labour market reform are in full swing. The reform must be implemented, the left-liberal daily Delo urges: "If the social partners prove unable to go a step further it will raise the question of whether this reform will also be unable to achieve its long-term goal of giving young people greater access to the labour market. To accomplish that there must be more, not fewer, educational grants, and it must be easier both to hire and to fire workers. The job market has literally collapsed, and to stabilise the situation reforms in other domains are also urgently needed. Because a labour law reform won't accomplish much if, aided by the tax office, employers - including the state - can continue to withhold payment of social insurance contributions with impunity."
