Tourism vouchers are total nonsense and just political marketing, say labor unions
The €500 tourism vouchers mandatory for companies with over 50 workers are “total nonsense and just political marketing,“ thundered Milan Minarech, head of labor unions at the Trnava car plant of PSA. The vouchers will cost the plant €1m, money the plant could use to increase wages and bonuses. Minarech says vast majority of workers would prefer higher wages to the vouchers. Zoroslav Smolinský, head of VW Bratislava labor union, agrees that the vouchers will reduce wage growth.
