Economy blamed for loss of call centre jobs
The Ministry of Jobs, Training and Innovation said the sector lost 2,300 jobs across the country last month due to low productivity growth, an increase seen even at the end of the boom in 2012.
While unemployment remains at a 12-year low of 2.4 per cent, the government is looking at ways to promote skills through incentives and training.
Minister of Labor and Employment, Pekka Rinne, said it was important to increase구미출장마사지 the demand for skiXO 카지노lled jobs, but said there was no plan to implement any more government-financed apprenticeships.
The government also announced a freeze in the number of foreign workers allowed to work in Finland over the coming years – a move that Finnish govern카지노ment officials said could create uncertainty about job security for Finnish foreign workers.
Finnish unemployment, in contrast, has also dropped in recent years, which may have been partly a result of a stronger currency.
“The government’s recent decision to suspend the import of foreign-funded apprenticeships, which was announced in October, is not related to a policy change,” Finnish trade unions association said in an email statement sent to AFP.
“As a result of the decision to freeze the number of foreign-funded apprenticeships, more Finnish firms and individuals will now not consider hiring the number of foreign-funded apprentices needed to fill its growing need of skilled workers,” it said.
