"I would like to have such a discussion in the public, especially speaking about those groups of workers who are under huge psychological pressure like we have examples today, including medics and social workers," the prime minister said in the parliament on Thursday.

"Such a discussion could definitely be started, and speaking of work efficiency, that half-day would probably help. It would be an opportunity to make work more effective, and if more people were needed on some sectors, the state would hire more people," the prime minister said.
