Regarding the national leave support fund that supports people who are not paid the leave allowance by companies, the period until the end of next month has been extended because the labor union is calling for support from people who work in non-regular employment. I requested the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare to do so.
The request was made by the labor union "Metropolitan area youth union" made up of people who work in non-regular employment, and on the 21st, the request was handed to the person in charge of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.
According to the union, the number of consultations from people who work as non-regular employees at restaurants has increased, such as "I received an explanation from my employer that my income is expected to decrease significantly due to shortened business hours, but I will not be paid a leave allowance." It means that there is.
For this reason, the request form states that the "leave support fund" of the country that directly pays 80% of wages up to 11,100 yen per day to those who are not paid the leave allowance until the end of next month. I am asking you to extend.
In addition, although the leave support fund is intended for people working in small and medium-sized enterprises, we requested that people working in large companies also be eligible for support.
A person in charge of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare who received the request said, "I would like to make the company more aware that shift workers are also eligible for the employment adjustment subsidy that subsidizes the leave allowance."
A man in his 40s who works as a part-time job at the izakaya chain that made the request complained, "I am really helped by the leave support money in the current situation where I can not work even if I want to work. I would like to ask for extension measures." It was.
Kohei Kurihara, Deputy Secretary General of the "Metropolitan Area Youth Union," said, "The food service industry is in a difficult business situation, and if support is not extended, the lives of workers will be further driven. I would like to request stronger support." I'm talking.
