Voters Widely Reject Changes to Undeclared Work Act

Ljubljana, 5 June - Changes to the 2000 act on undeclared work and employment with which the government wanted to clamp down on the informal economy was defeated resoundingly in Sunday's referendum. Labour Minister Ivan Svetlik believes this is a step away from the welfare state, which would result in a loss of jobs.
