More Budget Cuts In The Netherlands

Oops, we’re in another crisis (or is it just one big one?) and our government has decided to cut the budget by another 4.3 billion. Who will suffer from these cuts?

Well, obviously our teachers and nurses who won’t get an extra euro cent extra. Their salaries are “frozen”. They have been frozen for almost four years now. Their purchasing power has been decreased by about 10% these last years.

On top of that they, and everybody else, will have to pay more taxes.

We had been living in LaLaLand up to 2008, I get that. But getting out of this damned crisis thing would be nice for a change, wouldn’t it?

Love,

Mrs EconoWiser
