Trade union FNV today presents a package of demands to tackle the income crisis in the Netherlands. Most solutions have to come from employers, according to the press release. The union is demanding compensation for employees because of the rising costs of daily living.

For example, FNV wants an immediate increase in the statutory minimum wage to 14 euros with a corresponding increase in AOW and benefits. In addition, it wants a cap on energy prices, a profit tax increase to 35 percent, ‘fair’ taxes on property income, and a ‘serious approach to tax evasion by companies’, according to the press release.

In the message, the union also responds to the leaked cabinet plans for the repair of purchasing power. FNV describes the plans as a step in the right direction, but the union still finds it an insufficient answer to the purchasing power crisis. According to the union, the package comes too late for many to avoid debt. The government package is expected to come into effect on 1 January.
