The people able to work and benefiting from social assistance, but are unemployed, will be obliged to perform community works.
The Labor Ministry drafts a bill in this regard, but the practice has been applied for long in the village of Molesti near Chisinau.
"The number of hours worked should be in accordance with the labor law and proportional with the social aid received. The community works will be performed according to a plan to be approved by the local councils," said Labor Deputy Minister Viorica Dumbrăveanu.
According to the Ministry’s data, 90,000 households benefited from social assistance and other almost 200,000 households got assistance to heat their houses in 2016.
