The incentives will come in the form of reductions in social-security payments for two years.

The package, nicknamed the May Day decree as it is set to be approved before the national holiday dedicated to workers, will also include a tax bonus worth 100 euros that employees earning up to 28,0000 euros a year with at least one child will get in their pay packets January.
