So adding up this exciting news, that`s around 500 `new` jobs, across a huge area of West and Central Slowvakia ?? That`s hardly going to put a dent in the 14% unemployment figure, now is it ? The mind boggles at all those highly educated and super skilled workers shoveling crap into biomass boilers .
Given these positions are almost certain to to be subject to state incentives, ( ie bribes) just how much is this going to cost those of us that actually do work, in uncreated jobs and via our taxes ?
