Women in the village approved the reduction of the working day
The State Duma approved in the first reading amendments to the Labor Code. They concern women living in rural areas, who have decided to shorten their working hours. The changes will affect 10 million women throughout the country.
As told by the authors of the initiative "The Parliamentary Newspaper", now in legislation there is a contradiction. The current Government Decree of 1991 reduces the working week for residents of villages to 36 hours. And the Labor Code sets the standard in 40 hours for all workers.
The Ministry of Labor offered to resolve this issue in favor of employers. However, in the end, for rural women, they still secured the right to a shorter working week with full earnings.
