Mini Jobs Act Defeated in Referendum

Ljubljana, 10 April - The act on mini jobs, which reforms student work and introduces new forms of temporary jobs, was decisively defeated in Sunday's referendum, in what is seen as a vote of no-confidence for the government, presaging difficulties in the implementation of much tougher reforms.
