MOSCOW, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - More than 55% of economically active Russians would like to work in public sector or at state-owned enterprises, according to an opinion poll carried out by a research center of the Superjopb.ru recruitment portal.
A stable salary and “guarantees that an organization will not shut down in a month” were one of the main arguments in favor of public service.
Public service attracts not only the older generation but also youth. Fifty-eight percent of respondents under 24 years old said they would like to work for state-owned companies compared to 57% among people older than 45.
Twenty-two percent of the polled said they would not like to work as state bureaucrats for various reasons, including red-tape.
Twenty-three percent of respondents hesitated to give any answer.
The poll was carried out in May-June 2013 among 14,000 respondents older than 18 in over 500 populated localities in all Russian Federal Districts.
