Bonus for social benefit recipients scrapped

Ljubljana, 29 October - The National Assembly passed on Tuesday in an 34:18 vote amendments scraping a bonus for social benefit recipients who work. The majority of MPs agreed that the bonus, introduced in 2012 as a corrective welfare measure and work incentive, in many cases discourages people from taking a full-time job.
