I did not mention earlier, and it is important to the average reader that the restaurant employs only people from our county and that we did not hire workers outside Croatia. Most people in our restaurant have been working for 7 or more years, so let’s say that because of all the above, we are desirable employers. The government and all those considering the measures must understand that our company, and most caterers, are financially indebted to keep employees this winter (it is good to note that our turnover through the winter was equal to the gross salary of employees) and now when turnover should have increased we were left without any traffic. And so we come to February 2020. Because of the coronavirus, our groups from China have already dropped out, but we are still not in danger, later in the month other Asian groups are canceling and we are already worried, but we reckon that it is February and March, April will be better, we will survive. . Author known to the editorial office However, most of us are family people who work 12 hours a day to be able to feed our family, to be able to pay this beautiful Croatia for everything we need so that we can all live better together. And then the first person infected in Italy, and shortly afterwards in Croatia and then the whole of Europe, the whole world .. Unfortunately, according to all forecasts, and if the coronavirus is brought under control, we cannot expect any large turnover this year until the beginning of the high season, and thus we will not be able to repay debts to the state that will accumulate during this time. And here we are now where we are, a closed restaurant, employees at home. Even before the aforementioned Government measures, we have decided to leave all people on the payroll, regardless of the difficult situation. We have been together from the beginning and I hope we will survive this together. I told them all to stay home, that no one would be fired for the next two months, that we would cut their salaries, but also to be prepared to get stuck when the coronavirus situation calmed down. I will try to convey to you the opinion of one honest caterer. When I say honest, I mean the one who fiscalizes every bill in the restaurant, the one whose workers are all registered for full pay, the one who, despite the winter and reduced traffic, keeps all workers in employment. I support the Government’s efforts and believe that the minimum payment measure is good for all employees, but I also believe that it should be accompanied by the exemption of all contributions and payroll taxes for this time while we are closed. The local government should also waive part of its claims. To clarify the situation, I have to go back a little to the past in 2016 and raise the VAT rate to 25%. Until that year, ie until 2017, when this tax rate started to be applied, my company worked with profit, salaries were regular in both summer and winter. Already in 2017, financial problems began to appear in the winter, simply VAT was too high. In 2018, the winter was even harder and I began to question my knowledge and managerial skills, and rationalize costs, provided that reducing the number of workers and reducing their salaries was out of the question, due to my sociological view of them, but also for fear that I won’t have workers for the season. Unfortunately, a few irresponsible caterers with their irresponsible behavior towards society, employees, the state have created a wrong image of us – the image of arrogant and irresponsible people who live only for themselves and their pleasures. Due to this part of the caterer, the Government of the Republic of Croatia should think carefully and reconsider the measures adopted so far. Unfortunately, I know that there are not many of us like this, but that is a problem of the Ministry of Finance and the Government of the Republic of Croatia. In my humble opinion, this is an easily solvable problem that is unfortunately not solved, but that is another topic. Already in 2018, I was hoping that the tax rate would be reduced to 13%, but unfortunately we did not get it. In 2019, the light at the bottom of the tunnel, finally VAT goes to a lower rate, should endure this winter… Winter 2019/2020 worst ever, but somehow it’s easier for me because the season is approaching, Asian groups have already started in the 2nd month, announcements for all year round on average and 15% better than the previous year. The team in the restaurant is organized, with 3-4 students we can work the whole season. Employees, despite the delay in salaries, stay with us in the restaurant, although they can find work in any other restaurant. Photo: Pixabay.com
Chelsea’s record-equalling winning streak is not significant unless they go on to claim the Premier League title, says manager Antonio Conte.Saturday’s 4-2 defeat of Stoke was the Blues’ 13th Premier League win in a row – equalling the record of successive victories in a single season set by Arsenal during the 2001-02 campaign.“They are fantastic and we are proud,” said Conte of his side’s achievement.“But we must concentrate on the second part of the season.”He added: “Numbers are not important if you do not win the title.”Chelsea has a six-point lead at the top of the Premier League, with Liverpool, in second, beating Manchester City 1-0 in Saturday’s late game.Conte, who became Chelsea boss in the summer, acknowledged it would be “difficult” for his side to repeat their run, which began on October 1.“The first part of the season was incredible for us but the next half will be very hard for us,” he said.“We started the season as underdogs and now we have the light on us, we must know this and work more to find the right solution to try to win in every game.”Chelsea twice lost the lead to a gutsy Stoke side – after goals from Gary Cahill and Willian – before Willian’s second and Diego Costa’s late fourth ensured another three points for the Blues.Conte praised his players for coping with the Potters’ aerial and physical threat.“They showed great character because it’s not easy when you take the lead and concede, and do it again,” he said.“I was a player so I know this type of situation. You look at the clock and see you don’t have much time to win the game.“It’s not easy because, after so many wins, you face teams who want to beat you for many reasons and we must know this.“When you have these type of players you can go to sleep happy,” the manager noted.

PORTLAND — A sign on the side of a Salem, Ore., building announcing an imminent In-N-Out Burger appears to be a hoax. But better news could be on the horizon.The sign, stapled to plywood outside a building in downtown Salem, is a fake, according to In-N-Out Vice President of Operations Denny Warwick.This isn’t In-N-Out playing coy, either. According to Warwick, the building is “not a site that we are familiar with.”So does that mean there are Salem sites that the company is familiar with?Indeed it does.“We have looked at and evaluated a few sites in Salem and the surrounding area but we are still in the very early stages of development and are not yet ready to move forward with a particular location,” Warwick says.If In-N-Out did come to Salem, it would become the burger chain’s northernmost restaurant, leapfrogging their recent openings in Grants Pass and Medford, Ore.The state capitol is a little more than an hour south of Vancouver.
