  • [01] Gov't offers job subsidies to small retailers for hiring jobless

    The government has launched a plan to lower unemployment by subsidising small retailers to employ the jobless on a part-time basis.

    A recently passed law that allows longer shopping hours should act as an incentive to recruitment, Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas said on Thursday.

    Announcing the scheme with Employment Minister Panos Panayiotopoulos, he said the new programme was aimed at the self-employed and firms with a staff of up to three people registered as unemployed.

    A formerly jobless person would work four hours a day in a five-day working week for 20 months, receiving a daily subsidy of 15 euros for the first two months. In the remaining 18 months, the employer would receive 176 euros a month per employee hired, the two ministers said.

    [02] University entry-exam results released; statement by education minister

    The Education Ministry on Thursday released the exam results for entry into state universities (AEI) and technical colleges (TEI).

    This year, the applicants numbered 129,380, of which 81,021 passed, representing a 62.62 per cent success rate.

    In statements after the announcement of the results, Education and Religious Affairs Minister Marietta Yiannakou welcomed those who passed and wished them success in their studies, recommending them to make even greater efforts.

    For those who failed, the minister said they still have opportunities, noting that "in life we have both successes and failures."
