Approximately 450,000 Bulgarians earn their living working from home, as noted by a report presented by HomeNet Eastern Europe.
Prior to 2009 home workers were mostly retired people or permanently unemployed people. Currently, those two groups are joined by recent graduates - young laywers, economists, teachers and even artists, as explained by the organization.
The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate stood at 6.4% in February 2015, lower by 0.1% from January, and by 0.6% compared to the level recorded in February 2014, according to the data released on Tuesday by the National Statistics Institute (INS).
