  • Turkey will extend a wage support system for one month to continue offsetting fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and related lockdowns, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on June 29.
  • The short labour pay – which partially covers wages of formally-employed workers whose hours are cut – will extend into July.
  • It came into effect in March shortly after the first COVID-19 case was identified in Turkey.
