The government of Slovenia has confirmed that it plans to cut 2 of the 14 annual Slovenian non-working public holidays as part of its current set of austerity measures.

The aforementioned announcement confirms the announcement made earlier this spring by Slovenian Prime Minister, Janez Jansa (2012-03-26), and now specifies that the annual public holidays for the New Year and May Day, would be reduced from two days to only one day off.

Note that the Government of neighboring Croatia is also considering the elimination of 3 annual non-working public holidays (2012-03-06 and 2012-02-09) as part of its own set of austerity measures.
