Helsingin Sanomat has ordered a poll from TNS Gallup regarding Finns’ opinions on working life measures to improve Finland’s competitiveness. Finns would be ready to give up at least one working life benefit to create new jobs. The majority think that the best way to do this would be to give up raises for a year. More than half of the respondents also support cutting holiday pay by a third and extending annual working time by 24 hours without raising salaries. The least popular way to reduce employers’ costs is cutting evening and Sunday extras, the respondents found.
