While the Janša government set records for low unemployment, the Golob government is losing its grip when it comes to the same problem. Let’s also remember the top credit ratings we had under the previous government. On the 22nd of April this year, Moody’s confirmed Slovenia’s credit rating at A3 with a stable outlook. Despite the crisis, Slovenia enjoyed a strong economic and budgetary position.
The information filter of the mainstream media is still suppressing the feeling that the government of Robert Golob is facing problems that it is not capable of solving successfully. Slovenian Press Agency reports that 52,991 people were registered at the Employment Service of Slovenia at the end of this month, which is 1.8 percent more than in the month of September. In October, 6,848 more people were registered at the Employment Service, which is an increase of 38 percent from the previous month. Of these, 2,563 were looking for their first employment, which is 226.1 percent more than in the previous month!
Among the new entrants, there were also 2453 people whose fixed-term jobs have ended, 43 that registered due to bankruptcies and 574 who lost their previous jobs due to being redundant. Between January and October, there were an average of 57,426 unemployed people in the country on a monthly basis, 24.5 percent fewer than in the same period last year. However, of the 5,900 people who left the Employment Service in October, 3,629 gained employment or decided for self-
employment, which is 20.5 percent fewer than in the previous month, and 11.3 percent fewer than in October 2021.
The predominant occupations among the newly recruited workers were: secretary, sales clerk, simple processing worker, cleaner, server, domestic server, warehouseman and purchasing and sales clerk. The employment of preschool education workers, commercial sales representatives, waiters, drivers and kitchen assistants also increased. There are currently 921,583 persons in employment in the country (this data is from August).
