Niles: if on 31 December to make a holiday, it will be a real help to the economy

to Stop the new year’s bacchanal: 31st December is purely nominal, working day and no benefit to the economy and businesses brings. So the Chairman of the Duma Committee on labor, social policy and veterans ‘ Affairs Yaroslav Nilov.

So he responded to the proposal to reduce next year the new year holidays. First, a bill drafted in the Federation Council. But in the state Duma suggest to adjust it. However, in both scenarios weekend in January 2021 may be less.

“just want everybody to calm down, — said Yaroslav Nilov in an interview with TV channel “Russia 24″. Personally, my belief that everything will go as planned, and, in addition, the faction of the liberal democratic party will achieve that on December 31 of this year, was a day that was not the Orgy that was going on last year when some regions have arranged weekend, some regions – no. Business day – December 31 – was not. And we suggested then have to make 31 December, was a day. This will be a real help to the economy.”

the Head of the Duma Committee on labor, lipolytica and veterans ‘ Affairs considers that the proposal of the Federation Council have yet to consider closely.

“I believe it will not be supported, but at the same time pay attention to what those economic sectors that are mainly affected because of the coronavirus COVID-19, just during the holidays will be able to receive additional revenue, based on the fact that the demand for their services, their products will be upgraded — adds Nilov. — Take the bars, cafes, restaurants and other entertainment. It was then when people have free time, go to an organization that in the period of the pandemic was closed.”

Commenting on the idea of senators, Yaroslav Nilov reminded of the idea of the leader of LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who suggested that, given the constant debate between supporters and opponents of the long weekend to 31 December to 3 January was definitely the weekend.

“Everything else is decided by the citizens themselves, choose, — said the Deputy of the state Duma. — This is an add-on piece to a paid holiday. And citizens decide when these days use. We believe in the liberal democratic party, which is necessary for the economy, it is important that December 31 was a day off – again. And second, if a society has a misunderstanding of the discussion, it is necessary to do so were met – both supporters and opponents of the long weekend, but take away citizens ‘ weekend in any case unacceptable.”

in addition, said Nilov, although many of the pandemic and were home in paid leave, but have not had the opportunity to go. Therefore, they have to select also new year’s day is incorrect.

the Deputy from the liberal democratic party of Russia agree that the loss of profit in the economy is necessary to catch up the rest of the year. And Yaroslav Nilov has its own suggestions on this matter.

“Let’s waste less, let the governors will cease to shift the tiles where necessary and where not, billions to spend on lighting. To do absolutely mindless delegation trips to foreign countries, ostensibly for the exchange of experience, and besides the partying this trip not call — gave examples of typical use of the budget funds with enjoyable for some leaders of the consequences Nilov. — It’s completely reckless spending, which are the consumable part of our budgets and the Federal, regional and municipal level”.
