Gennimata: Movement for Change Has Submitted Plan on Supporting Employment

ATHENS – Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) party leader Fofi Gennimata, in an interview with ANT1 TV on Tuesday, explained her party's proposal for the state to subsidise employment with up to 40 pct of salaries, in order to avoid layoffs and increased unemployment, as well as the collapse of businesses. Funding can be provided via the SURE programme and the NSRF, amounting to 2 billion euros, and the programme concerns about one million people. "Our work support programme is targeted and cost-effective. We have submitted a proposal that is completely targeted and costed that the government can and must adopt," Gennimata said.

KINAL's leader expressed strong reservations about the opening of schools, saying: “The opening of schools is a big risk. I am waiting to see exactly what the plan is, as well as the strict requirements that Mr. Tsiodras [the health ministry's spokesperson for the pandemic] spoke about."

Gennimata also reiterated the position of the Movement for Change for an immediate extension of the primary residence protection scheme.
