BERLIN (Reuters) – The number of German companies that have their workers on shortened working hours is gradually easing, particularly in the construction, services and retail sectors, a survey by the German economic institute Ifo showed on Thursday.
In July, 42% of companies surveyed were still taking advantage of the Kurzarbeit furlough scheme, down from 46% in June and 53% in May.
