UHM proposes new policies to increase labour force

The Union Haddiema Maghqudin (UHM) launched a new policy for the labour market.

‘Our aim is to ensure more opportunities for future labour force participants and to make our policies more attractive if we are to be competitive’, said UHM.

UHM estimates that during the year 2020, the rate of Maltese workers in the labour force, aged between 20 and 64 years, will amount to 69%; 3% less than in other European Countries.

‘This difference is owed to the skills of Maltese workers’ says UHM.

In a bid to make up for these differences between the local and foreign labour Market,the Government should offer more financial incentives to increase work opportunities, while benefits given to unemployed should be discouraged.
