75% of Bulgarians have difficulty making ends meet

Against the backdrop of record inflation, more than 75% of Bulgarians are struggling to make ends meet, according to a survey by the National Statistical Institute.
More than 70 per cent say their household income has not changed in the past year, while 8 per cent say it has decreased because they have been left unemployed, their business has gone bankrupt or their salary has been cut. 19 per cent said their income had increased - mainly due to indexation of monthly wages or increases in pensions and social benefits. /BGNES
