“Self-employed workers cannot be treated as second-class citizens. There are actually exceptions to the workers’ contribution when there are any restrictions on working hours or capacity through the Temporary Employment Regulation Files (ERTE) to restrict activity by an administrative order. Are the self-employed less? “
