The number of unemployed since the beginning of the state of emergency has reached 91 783, Minister of Labor and Social Policy Denitsa Sacheva has told the BNR.

20,000 people have found jobs since March 13. 132,000 people will keep their jobs thanks to state support under the “60:40” scheme. The number of newly-registered unemployed has been steadily declining in recent weeks. The Minister believes that in case of a high percentage of infected staff in the social sphere and shortage of people, funds under the "Human Resources Development" Operational Program could be used to attract workers. Minister Sacheva pointed out the importance of preserving the liquidity of the state because all social payments depended on it.
