Ljubljana, 27 May - Parliamentary parties were unanimous on Tuesday in their support for a bill providing for subsidies for workers on forced leave due to lack of orders. Under the bill that the National Assembly passed early on Wednesday, compensations will cover 85% of the workers' wages, with 50% provided by the state and 35% by employers.
