More than 100 thousand independent workers, who saw their economic activity reduced due to the covid-19 pandemic, have applied for extraordinary support from the Government, the Ministry of Labour said on Sunday.

Since the helpline was launched last Wednesday, 102,708 self-employed workers have applied.

This financial support to a maximum of €438.81, is meant for self-employed workers on green receipts who in the last 12 months have paid their tax obligations for at least three consecutive months and are at risk of loosing their income due to the pandemic.
