No Extra Holidays in May

There was talk earlier this week and even today that Bulgarians would get six days off work during May. However, The Bulgarian Ministries Council has rejected the proposal for one week off from 1st to 6th May.

The original idea was put forward by the Bulgarian Social Minister, Emilya Maslarova to join up the two national holidays of Labour Day and St. George's Day (1st and 6th respectively). Two Saturdays were proposed to replace the missed working days.

But, she obviously reckoned without the Ministries Council who have decided to keep May 4th and 5th as normal working days, who suggested that it was in appropriate in the current financial climate to extend holidays and change normal working practices.
