The head of the Czech Chamber of Commerce, Petr Kužel, says Czech businesses welcome the possibility of a four-day working week, as proposed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs in a bid to reduce unemployment. According to the ministry’s plan, the government would reimburse companies for the salaries of people out of work due to lack of business. Mr Kužel said the measure should be introduced as soon as possible. According to the ministry, the plan is not expected to be launched before mid 2010 as several laws need to be amended.
