The Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Latvia has decided: the state will pay for the first three days of sick leave for workers with respiratory diseases.
Does the bourgeois government help workers? Of course not, because…
Earlier, the Prime Minister of Latvia Karins said that this decision was made as a step towards employers.
A sick employee is an expense for capitalists. Let’s reduce expenses by transferring the sick from sheet A to sheet B. Not all of them. And the general public can be presented with this as care for employees during a pandemic.
Demand 100% payment of sick leaves by the employer and from the first day of illness! Do the “for all good” parties mention this point in their fairy-tale programs? No, and they will not, because they defend and represent the class enemies of the working people.
