Abstract

The labor market policy in the Republic of Bulgaria in the transition period and nowadays has in different extents reflected the needs of the economy. Initially developing along with the labor market, its character is mainly preventive. Later, it includes more active programs and activities targeted at adequate answers to the changes of macroeconomic environment and periods of economic development. The anti-crisis policy in the country from 2008 till now is mostly directed to the financial stability and consolidation and strongly limits the support to employment. However, as a whole the active policy has a secondary and temporary role in employment support and could not exchange the investment activities for creation of places of work.

At least two problems could be underlined as general regarding the opportunities for improvements in the positions of the representatives of the risky groups on the labor market: • literacy problems and the opportunity through literacy programs the quality of the risky groups to be improved regarding labor market; • problems of early dropping out of the educational system in the group of children and subsequent direct hit into the risky groups.

Keywords: labor market, active politics, social technologies
