Here’s a scary thought for the amateurish New Jersey Nets: Mikhail Prokhorov is leading a campaign to undo decades-old Russian labour laws that he says hinder development.A draft document for his proposed reforms appearing this week includes (via John Helmer):
an extension of the legal work week to 60 hours; elimination of social security cover for workers on study leave; substitution of unlimited-tenure employment contracts with fixed terms; introduction of commercial and profitability reasons for employee sackings; and authorization for employers to modify labour contracts unilaterally.
Think that applies to his American workers? The Nets have won TWO GAMES this year, so maybe it does.
