Deputy Prime Minister: Government is considering ways to assist  workers in the restaurant sector

ArmInfo. The Armenian government is considering ways to assist workers in the restaurant sector. On May 27, RA Deputy Prime Minister Mher Grigoryan stated this from a parliamentary rostrum, referring to the situation in this area when  restaurant complexes cannot resume their work due to the risks of the  spread of coronavirus.

Grigoryan noted that one of the main problems is that a number of  workers involved in this area were not officially registered by the  employer. This, in turn, prevents their identification for targeted  assistance in the framework of anti-crisis programs. On the one hand,  some of them were still able to take advantage of assistance under  the 9th program, as well as programs for partial compensation of  utility bills. However, given the seriousness of the problem, ways to  solve it are under discussion. Grigoryan did not rule out the  possibility that restaurant workers affected by the crisis would  either receive assistance within the framework of already approved  programs, or a separate program would be developed. This also applies  to tourism workers who also lost their earnings due to the risk of  coronavirus spreading.

To recall, earlier representatives of the restaurant sector held a  protest in front of the Government building, demanding attention to  their difficult situation. These included not only the leadership of  restaurant complexes, but also musicians and event hosts. The  protesters pointed out that their main earnings were mass events  (weddings, celebrations, and so on), however, during an emergency it  is forbidden to hold measures with the participation of more than 20  people, as a result of which they are forced to stand idle from  March, and practically cannot feed their families.
