Employers Insist on Paying per Hour
Employers have insisted that the minimal monthly salary is removed from the Bulgarian system of payment and replaced with fixed hourly payment rates. Such a change follows closely the American payment system and would be quite new for Bulgaria, where currently most of the monthly earnings are a fixed value. The Minister of Labor and Social Policy argues that such a change will be beneficial, especially for students and housewives, and also that it will significantly reduce unemployment.
Award Named after Radichkov Established
Yordan Radichkov died at the age of 74 on January 21st, 2004. He is one of the most significant Bulgarian authors of the last quarter of the past century. Radichkov▓ style stood out with incredible individuality even during the period of strong socialist influence on prose. His name has gone far beyond the borders of Bulgaria as his books have been translated into more than 30 languages. The award, honoring him is established in Vratsa, the town where Radichkov started his career.
Radichkov▓s Obituary:
Slovenia Stole BG Rakia
Rakia (grape brandy) is the most popular alcohol in Bulgaria with a long-stnading tradition of preparation and consumption. Now Slovenia has managed to patent it first for European Union exports. Such a development is clearly seen as a disgrace by the Bulgarian people as suddenly another country presents a Bulgarian symbol as its own. It is not about the alcohol, it is rather a question of identity and pride.
