Belarusians encouraged to look for money-making opportunities

MINSK, 26 August (BelTA) – There are many opportunities in the country, and especially in Minsk, for those who want to earn money, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told the media after visiting the BelOMO Holding Company in Minsk on 26 August, BelTA has learned.

“Minsk is a quiet and cozy city. Jobs, vacancies are many,” the head of state said about the Belarusian capital.

For example, there are up to 200 vacancies at BelOMO alone. The company needs both highly-qualified personnel and blue-collar workers.

“Work and earn. If you want more, you need to work more,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president cited an example from his life. As a student, he received an higher scholarship for academic excellence and social achievements, but still it was not much money. “At night I unloaded rail cars as a side hustle. If someone wants to earn money, they have to work harder,” said the head of state.

He urged young people to spend less time in their smartphones and be more active in self-realization and search of opportunities to earn money. “The phone should be used for work purposes only. Use it when you really need it. But it is not right to sit and think that smartphones will grow you potatoes,” the president said.
