The Slovenian Institute 8th March, supported by transform! europe, presents this collection of two sets of life stories: The first one was part of a campaign for workers’ rights, carried out before the pandemic, the second one is dedicated to the situation of self-employed parents during the pandemic.
The collection on workers’ rights particularly consists of students' stories who face impossible conditions, exploitation, and harassment. Among the most representative stories collected is the testimony of a worker whose employer requires him to postpone a medical examination, or the case of a worker who applied for a salary increase after one year and, instead of being promoted, has been fired immediately. The second set of life stories is part of a campaign to help self-employed parents during the pandemic. With the help of these testimonies, the Institute of 8th March could convince the Slovenian authorities to provide them with emergency assistance funds.
