2012 pay rises average 1.9%

Wednesday 14 November 2012

Wages in the Netherlands have risen by an average 1.9% so far this year, below the rate of inflation, according to research by HR advisory group Human Capital Group.

In 2011, wages rose by an average 2.1%.

In addition, secondary benefits, such as internet costs and help with healthcare fees, are being cut, as is cash for staff training, the researchers said.

My husband gets the "big doughnut hole" this year! He is a civil servant (25 years) so he gets no increase in pay, no cost of living increase, and now has to work 2 years longer in order to receive his pension! Thanks Dutch government!

I still have reasonably secure employment for which I am thankful. My cup is half full.
